At this time, Northern Illinois Food Bank will NOT be accepting food drive donations. We greatly appreciate our community's will to help, and we would love for you to consider hosting an online Fund Drive to help feed our neighbors. 

We recommend getting in touch with your local food pantry if you would like to conduct a physical food drive.
