Today is the last day of our Harvest Auction!
There’s still time to peruse more than 80 fabulous food, farm, and travel packages donated by our members and supporters across the state. It’s a great place to shop for holiday gifts, stock up on local foods for the winter, or plan a future outing to a local farm.
The auction closes at 8pm tonight.
Also be sure to check out our puzzle and read about Danielle’s journey from the fields of France to starting a cottage food bakery in Illinois. Your donation will help reveal the puzzle image and make small business dreams come true.
Finally– don’t forget that now’s the time to purchase a limited edition Alliance t-shirt in blueor red. There are only a handful of opportunities to purchase these t-shirts throughout the year– and this is one of them!
Every bid, donation, or purchase helps support our work to bring farmers and eaters together to solve problems, shift policy, and build collective power to grow the health and wealth of Illinois communities.

This coming year we’re working on solutions to increase farm-to-school, solve livestock processing bottleneck, address racial equity in our food system, help farmers build climate resilience, and provide them with the tools they need to sink carbon and clean drinking water.
Thank you for your continued support of our vision for a world where farmers earn a living responsibly stewarding the land, shoppers can easily find and buy local food, and we all enjoy thriving communities and ecosystems.
