9 Ways to Take Action




Take action and get the food you and your family needs to thrive. Visit a food pantry or meal program, pick up free groceries at a Mobile Market, order through our online food pantry, or call our Resource Line at (844)600-7627 for SNAP and other options.

Find food!



For every $1 donated, Northern Illinois Food Bank helps provide $8 worth of groceries to a neighbor in need. Every donation makes a real difference. Double your impact with matching gifts. Contact us about planned giving and other gift opportunities.
