July Gifts: Three Times the Impact

This July, your financial gifts to ICA will be tripled through two different matching gifts. Open Your Heart to the Hungry and Homeless is sponsoring the seventh annual Food Shelf Challenge Grant. They'll match up to $5,000 for any gifts given to ICA during the month of July. In addition, the Larson Foundation has agreed to match gifts up to $5,000 to help support our efforts to address childhood hunger.

Please consider a gift today. We would love to max out these matching grants, making your gifts of $5,000 into a total of $15,000. 

Thank you for your support of those in need in our community!

ICA Kids' Summer MarketICA Kids' Summer Market

We are so excited to bring back our summer food program for kids! Newly renamed, the ICA Kids’ Summer Market will provide clients with extra food for every school-aged child in their family this summer.

How does it work? Clients get to choose five additional items for each school-aged child in their household. Our food logistics team has created an extra section in the store with kid-friendly foods from which clients can choose. Think macaroni and cheese, carrot sticks and ranch, peanut butter and jelly sandwich fixings, and other kid-friendly items.

When we have offered this program in previous years, families received a prepackaged bag of food per child. We are so excited to bring the choice model to this program this year.

We hope that this program helps to alleviate the additional financial pressure that families experience when school is out. From additional childcare costs to the loss of free and reduced-price lunch, summer can be expensive. The program will run all summer, so all clients who visit us this summer will have the opportunity to participate.

Thank you for your support as we feed the hungry kids in our community!
