Our members have included faith leaders and laity from two dozen congregations including Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist and Sikh congregations.


The Interfaith Hunger Initiative will be ceasing operations, having carried out its original five-year mission. Thank you to everyone who has supported this wonderful cause. Because of you, thousands of hungry men, women and children have been and continue to be fed. While our work is done in an official capacity, the spirit of our mission lives on through the interfaith relationships that were formed. Blessings and peace to all. ––August 2015

Interfaith Thanksgiving Service—Thank you to all who participated in the Interfaith Thanksgiving Service at Second Presbyterian Church on November 21! It was a wonderful service, with reflections by Rabbi Brett Krichiver, and raised over $3,000 for the Interfaith Hunger Initiative! Full service available to view above.

The Interfaith Hunger Initiative is proud to announce that it has partnered with Gleaners, along with Kroger and Kraft Foods, to help purchase a truck that will be used to make delivered to Pantry Partners. This provides a HUGE service to these pantries as they will no longer have to rent or maintain trucks and make multiples trips to Gleaners to pick up food. Funds for this were made possible by a grant to IHI from Lilly Endowment.
