Who doesn’t like enjoying local ice cream while supporting our Foodbank and hearing local music! The Ice Cream Social fundraiser is happening on our Front Porch from 11-1 during a portion of the Urbana Market at the Square.
1: Common Ground’s Annual Ice Cream Social event benefits Eastern Illinois Foodbank. 15% of our Champaign County neighbors are food insecure, so our fundraiser goes a long way.
2: We will be serving several flavors of locally made ice creams and vegan gelato from Red Bicycle Ice Cream in Urbana, highlighting local dairy farm, Kilgus Farmstead in Fairbury.
3: We will have live music from New Souls, kids face-painting, and a card making station for families receiving meals from EIB
4: It will be donation based, donate-what-you-can so that it is accessible for all. We’re hoping to raise over 10,000 meals.
