Northern Illinois Food Bank

Northern Illinois Food Bank – a proud member of Feeding America – is the source of nutritious food, innovative feeding programs, and hope for more than half a million people each year. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a goal of solving hunger in our 13-county service area, we rely on our generous donors, volunteers, and community partners – the local food pantries and feeding programs, food manufacturers and retailers, companies, foundations and individuals who join with us in our vision for no one to be hungry in Northern Illinois.

We invite you to join us through volunteering at one of our four centers (West Suburban Center in Geneva; North Suburban Center in Park City; Northwest Center in Rockford; South Suburban Center in Joliet), becoming a financial or food donor, and helping us spread the word about hunger in our community on Facebook and Twitter.
