In this post we feature Team Terrific Tuesday, a stalwart volunteer group that donates its time every Tuesday at Northern Illinois Food Bank’s North Suburban Center in Park City. These dedicated individuals became friends while helping feed hungry neighbors. Longtime group member Jack Powell recently got the team together to answer our questions!
The same people kept showing up week after week, working hard and showing continued dedication so Tom Hong, Northern Illinois Food Bank retail relations liaison, gave it to us.
For us, the best thing we do each year is always working on the annual Holiday Meal Box project.
Otherwise Betty (longtime member of the group) wouldn’t have any friends. It’s actually because we as a team are helping so many people in our area have a meal when they need it.
That’s easy. 1. Finding actual bananas in the banana boxes. 2. Bagging sweet potatoes. 3. Sorting and labeling venison.
