Hunger Action Month


We’ve dedicated a whole month to raising hunger awareness and there are many ways you can get involved. Because Action Matters Most. Hunger lives right here in Northern Illinois, but you can be a part of the solution. How will you take action?






Watch our September 1 State of the Food Bank webinar with our CEO, Julie Yurko, to hear about our progress and goals for the upcoming year.

I want to watch the webinar!


In honor of the 9/11 National Day of Service, we’ll have special volunteer shifts on September 10 & 11 at all four Centers! Help sort & pack or distribute groceries to our neighbors in need throughout the month.

Sign me up!

Hunger lives in our community and can impact individuals every single day. We will share one story for every day in September about the affects of hunger.
