US Foods Holiday Drive!

November 18 - December 13

This holiday season, please join us in helping our community Make It by participating in our 7th annual US Foods Holiday Donation Drive to support the Northern Illinois Food Bank (NIFB)! With your help, we can make a difference in the lives of thousands of people in our community who face hunger every day. Remember that for every $1 donated, the food bank can help provide $8 worth of groceries to a family in need.

To celebrate your contributions and spread awareness of our campaign, every employee who donates will recieve a US Foods "Helping Communities Make It" wristband.

Volunteer

A portion of the funds we raise this year will sponsor the deployment of mobile food pantries to high-need areas where people have limited access to food resources. If you are interested in distributing groceries at a future NIFB Mobile Pantry sponsored by US Foods, please contact Jenece Upton (jenece.upton@usfoods.com).
