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.

The Senior Grocery Market provides distributions of nutritious food rescued from retailers to select senior centers or other senior-specific locations on a varying weekly or monthly basis.

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 Senior Grocery Market held at the Food Bank’s Northwest Center in Rockford – view the volunteer calendar and register here
