Foodie 5K 2019


Our Team Fundraising Page

Please join us in the fight against hunger in our community!  

Did you know that Northern Illinois Food Bank provides food and other essential items to more than half a million people every year? That’s why we have committed to raise funds that will help provide for these precious families by participating in this year’s Foodie 5K fun run/walk. Last year’s event was a rewarding experience and great success. Thanks to everyone's support the Food Bank was able to provide the equivalent of $1.8 million worth of groceries for families in need. This year the goal is $2 million worth of groceries!

Please join us in making a difference in the lives of the thousands of people in Northern Illinois who are hungry. The funds we raise will stay right here, in our backyard, and will fill an empty plate of a hungry neighbor.  

Did you know that every $1 donated helps provide $8 worth of groceries?  

$20 helps provides a monthly food box to a senior who is unable to visit a food pantry.

$30 helps provide $240 of groceries to a family in need.

$60 helps provide food-filled backpacks to six hungry children with enough food for the entire weekend

Please join us at the Foodie 5K or support our efforts with a donation that will build hope for a family in our community! Every donation makes a difference.  


Thanks in advance!
