Ice Cream Social at Common Ground August 17th

Join us in our parking lot for our 3rd Annual Ice Cream Social on Sunday, August 17th from 2-4 p.m.

This year, Common Ground challenges you, our community, to help raise 10,000 meals for the Eastern Illinois Foodbank! For a donation of any amount, you can build your own sundae with local ice cream from Kilgus Farmstead Creamery and organic toppings, enjoy local music from The Church Street Ramblers, face painting, kids entertainment from our own Produce Manager Satina, and the opportunity to meet your local foodbank staff. This event is open to everyone and a delicious way to support our Food Bank during the summer months when the need for food assistance remains high. 100% of the proceeds will directly benefit the Eastern Illinois Foodbank.

Did you know, summer is actually the time of year the foodbank needs support the most? Children are out of school which means more mouths to feed at home, while at the same time fewer donations are made in summer months.

Join our Facebook event for more details.
