COVID-19 has impacted most aspects of our lives, and for some people that includes hunger. The food banks are in greater need than ever as the number of food insecure individuals rise and donations decline.
Half a million people rely on food provided by Northern Illinois Food Bank each year. These are our friends, our families and our neighbors.
Please join the MEAU VISION team to help Northern Illinois Food Bank put food on their plates by joining our Virtual Food Drive.
Every $1 donated helps provide $8 worth of groceries, so every gift can make a big impact. And to further that impact, Vision will match total donations up to $5000.
Imagine your $20 donation becoming $40, and that $40 becomes $320 worth of food. Now imagine we reach our goal of raising $5000, and that donation becomes $10,000. Together we can help provide $80,000 worth of food!
Here are some other ways Northern Illinois Food Bank puts your dollars to work to solve hunger in Northern Illinois:
$20 helps provide a monthly food box to a senior who is unable to visit a food pantry.
$30 helps provide $240 worth of groceries to a family in need.
$60 a month helps provide a food-filled backpack to feed three children every weekend of the school year.
How can you help? Donate now towards our goal, share our team fundraising site with family and friends, or join our team to help us multiply our impact!
If you would prefer to donate by mail, please let me know so I can send you the offline form to include with your check. Every donation makes a difference.
Together, we can solve hunger.
