For the past 25 years, CityLink, Kroger and Peoria Friendship House have joined hands in an effort to gather enough food to stuff a CityLink bus. The food is then distributed throughout the year through the Peoria Friendship House Food Pantry. In addition to the food products collected, the funds raised through the Waffles and Wings luncheon will be used to provide fresh meats for the weekly pantry distribution.
Over 40,000 meals will be provided to needy families in Peoria through Friendship House emergency service programs.
Peoria Friendship House of Christian Service, 800 NE Madison, has been serving those in need on Peoria’s near north side for more than 60 years providing food, meals, clothing, children’s programs, Hispanic outreach, and emergency services. It is the home of Dress for Success Peoria and RSVP.
