Meals on the Move

Meals on the Move is a mobile meals route that provides FREE meals to children and teens 18 years and under.

As a part of the USDA’s Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) The Northern Illinois Food Bank’s van visits different park sites to offer free and nutritious boxed meals to youth in convenient locations.

Due to COVID-19, children do not need to be present in order for parents and guardians to pick up meals on their children’s behalf.
