Northern Illinois Food Bank is able to feed more than 60,000 hungry neighbors across 13 counties because of the support of our volunteers. Last year, 14,000 volunteers donated more than 105,000 hours of their time to help distribute 50 million pounds of food, the equivalent of 42 million meals to those who need it most.

Whether you are looking for a one-time volunteer opportunity for a group or an ongoing opportunity for yourself, we can put your talents to use. Explore the links below to find out how you can make a difference.
