We can do this!
Hunger is not a disease. It is a situation. And it’s one we can fix!
Let’s work together to solve hunger in Kendall County!
Of all the things you can donate, money is still the most effective. For every $1 you donate, we use the buying power of Northern Illinois Food Bank to provide $8 worth of groceries to a neighbor in need.
