Northern Illinois Food Bank's Virtual Food Drive FY18

Holiday Donation Drive!

This holiday season, please join us in helping our community Make It by participating in our 5th 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 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.
