Group Opportunities:
The North Suburban Center can accommodate individual volunteers and groups of up to 40 people.

Groups of 15 or more are able to join one of our regular shifts or may be able to schedule an alternate shift. Alternate shifts are offered on Wednesday mornings and afternoons, Thursday afternoons, and Friday mornings. So that we do not overbook and we make the most efficient use of your time and energy, all groups must schedule their visit in advance. Want to start volunteering?

Protein Pack:
Each week Northern Illinois Food Bank receives thousands of pounds of donated meat from area retail stores through our Food Recovery Program. The meat is frozen and packaged and needs to be sorted. Volunteers are needed to assure the packaging is intact and the meat is still fresh. Once approved, it is sorted, re-labeled, and boxed. There is some lifting required and all positions require volunteers to stand on concrete floors.Want to start volunteering? Click here to find out how to get started.
