Be part of a vibrant team and multi-cultural team who receives food every Wednesday from Northern IL Food Bank. Upon delivery, we stock shelves, stow cases, and have some fun along the way!

Volunteer once a month or as often as you'd like. We need people of all ages and abilities. There are different jobs for different talents...We have a small team of lifters, pullers, and pushers of cases and pallets of food. We have another team of shelf stockers who don't lift anything at all. If you have the time and desire to serve, we have something for you to do.

Families, grade school, middle school, and high school kids on summer, spring, and winter breaks are welcome to attend with a parent.

Here are some things we do every Wednesday:

  • Move pallets of food with a pallet jack - dry, refrigerated, frozen foods
  • Break down pallets by food items
  • Take some items to immediately shelve
  • Take and stow other items in storage areas
  • Take out trash & recycling
  • Clean up
Because we have limited space, we turn all of our food over every 7 days!! It doesn't have time to go bad because we have to get it out to make space for new food coming tomorrow.
