Community Support

Our Collections will be mainly virtual and our Distributions will be mainly drive through, yet our focus remains – to make Christmas MORE JOYFUL for our neighbors in need! Watch for 2022 Community Support updates to be posted as we receive them.

Northern Illinois Food Bank – Circle of Hope Society – 2022

From the NIFB:  Our Northern Illinois community is made up of neighbors who are there for each other. Sometimes neighbors need help. Sometimes neighbors have help to give. We are all neighbors, working to create a thriving community in Northern Illinois.

Thank you for making our community stronger! Based on your generous giving this past fiscal year (July 1, 2021 through June 30, 2022), I am pleased to let you know that you are part of Northern Illinois Food Bank’s Circle of Hope Society.

The Circle of Hope Society is one way we can recognize you as one of our most invested neighbors. As a Circle of Hope member, you will be recognized in the Food Bank’s online Fiscal Year 2022 Annual Report and on our Donor Wall at the West Suburban Center in Geneva. Contributors will be listed in ranges of gift amounts for donations made between July 1, 2021 and June 30, 2022.

In fiscal year 2022 your generous support helped:
• Provide 78 million meals to neighbors in need
• Supported Mobile Market distributions bringing food to convenient locations for neighbors
• Meet the increased demand for food caused by higher prices
