Foundations of East Chicago (FEC) grants go to organizations that will ensure the funds are used to meet the needs of the people of East Chicago. These grants have been awarded since FEC’s inception in 1998. They are often distributed to organizations that provide a wide variety of services to East Chicagoans. However, sometimes one area exhibits more of a need than others. Check out the following video to see how FEC grants went to 10 different food pantries to stave off hunger in the community.
