Court Ordered Community Service

Northern Illinois Food Bank’s Court-Compelled Program is for those individuals who must serve court-compelled community service hours as ordered by a judge. All individuals with court-ordered community service hours must be at least 16 years old. The Court-Compelled Program is separate from the Food Bank’s Volunteer Program.

A number of offenses requiring an individual to serve court-ordered community service hours may be completed at the Food Bank. All individuals with court-ordered community service hours must:

  • Be at least 16 years old
  • Call 630.443.6910 ext. 192 and leave a message or email to discuss the possibility of serving their hours at the Food Bank
  • Must complete a Court-Compelled Intake Form
  • (download to access digital version)

The Court-Ordered Program is separate from our volunteer program. Do NOT register to volunteer online, as those hours WILL NOT count toward your court-ordered community service hours.

If your offense is one that is acceptable to the Food Bank:

  • Individuals must return the Food Bank’s intake form with copy of the original court order. All forms must be returned directly to the Food Bank via email, fax, or in person at our West Suburban Center in Geneva.
    Email: courtcompelled@northernilfoodbank.org
    Fax: 630.443.6916
    Mail or in person: 273 Dearborn Ct. Geneva, IL 60134
  • Locations where hours may be served include Northern Illinois Food Bank Centers in Geneva, Joliet, Park City, or Rockford
  • Court-ordered hours must be scheduled by sending an email or leaving a message at 630.443.6910 ext 192. A Food Bank team member will respond to your scheduling requests as soon as possible.
