Northern Illinois Food Bank needs your help to help feed every neighbor every meal, every day. We encourage you to get involved in the way you feel most comfortable – and then share your support of the Food Bank with family, friends and colleagues. Together we are solving hunger!
More than 75% of the food distributed by the Food Bank is donated from retailers, manufacturers, farmers and community food drives.
Every $1 donated can help provide $8 worth of groceries to neighbors in need. Financial support is vital to operate our direct distribution programs, like the BackPack Program and Mobile PantryProgram, and provide nutritious food through our network of more than 900 feeding programs.
Last year dedicated volunteers donated 136,000 hours of time – the equivalent of 65 full time staff. We need your time and talent to keep our operations running efficiently.
Join us at our annual special events held throughout the year.
