Senior Grocery Program

Northern Illinois Food Bank’s Senior Grocery Program provides nutritious food for older adults so they can prepare meals to support their overall health and well-being.

The Senior Grocery Box provides a monthly box of shelf-stable nutritious food once per month.

The Senior Grocery Mobile provides an indoor distribution of nutritious food at select low-income senior housing communities. Volunteers also assist seniors in taking the food back to their apartments.

How you can help:

  • Sponsor food boxes for senior pre-existing partner buildings
  • Sponsor a senior mobile distribution pre-established locations
  • Donate funds for a senior grocery market distribution at pre-established locations
  • Volunteer at the Winnebago Community Market held at the Food Bank’s Northwest Center in Rockford – view the volunteer calendar and register here
