Ready to Volunteer?

All volunteer shifts must be scheduled in advance so that we do not overbook and make the most efficient use of your time and energy.

If you are interested in one of our unique or featured volunteer opportunities, please contact us directly at 630.443.6910 or volunteer@northernilfoodbank.org . You will then be provided with additional details and any necessary paperwork needed prior to your first shift.

If you are interested in our food sort or bulk repack opportunities, please visit our online calendar.

Every volunteer needs to bring a completed Volunteer Consent Form to their first volunteer shift, if they have not registered online.

You can also view our Volunteer Program Manual for more details.

• All volunteers must be at least 8 years of age.
