Four Star Rating from Charity Navigator!

The Northern Illinois Food Bank family is excited to announce it has been designated as a four-star charity for an eighth consecutive year! We earned this distinction from Charity Navigator, a premier charity evaluator. Our commitment to using the donations we receive wisely and for our ability to expand our programs with fiscal responsibility allowed us to obtain this ranking which only one percent of rated charities have received. Ninety-six percent of our resources go to programs that feed hungry people, and Northern Illinois Food Bank can turn every dollar donated into six meals for our hungry neighbors.


In addition, NIFB was named to the national Top 10 list of Top Notch Charities! NIFB not only earned the highest 4-star rating for our Financial Health, but we also earn 4-stars in Accountability & Transparency. This mans that NIFB adheres to good governance and other best practices that minimize the chance of unethical activities and that we execute our mission in a fiscally responsible way.
