Illinois is working to fight against food insecurity in the state. Governor Pritzker announced the establishment of the Healthy Foods Access Program. A measure signed by the governor helps expand access to healthy foods in under served areas. Grocery stores, corner stores, farmers’ markets, and other small retailers may receive assistance through grants, loans, equipment, or other financial assistance.
