Tri-County Map of Food Insecurity Organizations

Project: Tri-County Map of Food Insecurity Organizations (Draft Project Title)

The goal of this project is to address a problem in the Peoria area through a public relations campaign. We are working to address a couple of problems involving the food desert in Peoria; the first is the lack of communication between food pantry/bank owners and managers.

They can use this map as a resource to learn more about other food insecurity organizations in the tri-county area and, ideally, encourage more collaborative work between them.

We'd also love to have those who go to food banks/pantries use this map to easily find banks/pantries near them and know the hours of operation and requirements to receive donations.

The map in draft can be found here.
