VOLUNTEER AT ONE OF OUR PANTRIES
Make a monetary contribution
Monetary contributions enable us to purchase the most amount of food through the Northern Illinois Food Bank--thus maximizing your donation more than you would be able to by buying food for donating at the grocery store.
Contributions of all kinds are welcome - see the list of food and other items above that are needed at each of the sites. These items would be ideal for you, your family, neighborhood, church, or other organization to collect through a food drive.
