Get ready for the holidays!

26/Oct/18 / 17:28

Walking down the Halloween candy aisle while “Jingle Bell Rock” is playing overhead can only mean one thing – the holidays are just around the corner!
But before you make a shopping list and check it twice, take a moment to reflect on how you can Give What Matters this holiday season.
By making us a part of your celebration, you’re ensuring families, children, and seniors in your community have the food they need to have a happy holiday season.
Take advantage of these opportunities to Give What Matters this year!

Host a virtual food drive

Our online Food & Fund Drive site has gotten a makeover! Make the most of this season of giving by inviting family and friends to make a difference for our hungry neighbors.
In a few easy steps, start your fundraiser in time for the holidays!

Send out holiday cards

With each card, you’ll be making a donation of $10 on behalf of family and friends, which helps provide $80 worth of groceries for our hungry neighbors!
Preview and order your cards now, in time for the holidays.

Share that you care

Food Bank shirts and sweaters make a great gift for family and friends! Stop by our center in Geneva to get yours before they sell out.

Remember our hungry neighbors

Our gift to you! Hang this as a reminder that what you do matters for local families, children and seniors struggling with hunger in Northern Illinois. Thank you!
