Coming Together to Bring Hope

You work hard but let us help give you fresh, free food so that you have one less thing to worry about this month.


Northern Illinois Food Bank partners with 900 feeding programs across 13 counties to serve our neighbors needing food.

Find Food at a Pop-Up Market

Thank you to Community Foundation of Grundy County for supporting the Mobile Markets at Goodwill in Morris.

Community Foundation of Grundy County


The Food Bank invites anyone that needs a little extra help during this time to join us at our Pop-Up Markets. Eligibility is based on self-attested need. You do not need to have a referral or need to be receiving other assistance, and income is not a factor to receive food. Our Pop-Up Markets are designed to make it safe and easy for our neighbors to receive food during this time. Just come to the pop-up in a vehicle, with some space for our staff to place the pre-packed boxes and bags of groceries. No need to bring your own boxes or bags- the groceries will be already packed in bags and boxes for you!


Find Food at a Partner Pantry

Get a box of fresh, healthy food from a partner pantry near you. With a variety of locations and pick-up times, even the busiest individuals and families can easily get food. We strongly recommend calling before you go to confirm distribution dates/times.
