Northern Illinois Food Bank is grateful for the generosity of our donors, and is committed to being a good steward of your support. We stretch every dollar donated into $8 worth of nutritious groceries for our hungry neighbors. 97 percent of our resources go towards programs to feed our hungry neighbors. This efficiency has earned Northern Illinois Food Bank a four-star rating by Charity Navigator, an independent evaluator of charities.


We recognize that how a supporter donates is as unique as each individual. In addition to making a financial contribution, you can also support the food bank by hosting an online food drivedonating food, volunteering or supporting a special event. Any way you give helps us feed more hungry neighbors and we thank you in advance for your generosity.
