Northern Illinois Food Bank is passionate about serving our hungry neighbors by helping to provide them with healthy meals for their families.

We invite congregations and schools of all faiths to participate in Full on Faith – a week-long initiative dedicated to providing local mission opportunities for faith-based organizations to put their faith into action. By volunteering at the Food Bank, hosting Food and Fund drives, and discussing hunger, you can help the Food Bank solve hunger in our community.

Full on Faith 2017 – This February 11-18, help us spread awareness, educate each other on the need of our hungry neighbors, learn ways to get involved, and help us pack 150,000 meals!

Opportunities to get involved:

  • Volunteer at one of our Centers in Geneva, Rockford and Park City – groups from 1-50 and children ages 8 and up are welcome
  • Host a Food Bank speaker at your place of worship to educate your group or leaders on the issues of hunger in our community. Speakers are available to schedule any time – during Full on Faith week and throughout the year.
  • Take a special collection during a service or hold a reverse offering and donate it to the Food Bank – every $1 provides $8 worth of food
