Backpack Program

The BackPack Program provides food to supplement weekend meals for a child and their siblings. Children are identified by school staff, who recognize signs of chronic hunger or are aware of families in need, and distribute backpacks to students on Fridays. Your generous gift will make a huge difference for children right here in our community.


Our friends at Fideliter Charities have graciously offered a gift match to help fund our Backpack program for gifts up to $18,000! Your gift today will benefit the Backpack Program and can provide two times more meals for children in Northern Illinois.

Your gift will support our Backpack Program. All contributions are tax-deductible. To make a gift by mail, send your check made out to Northern Illinois Food Bank to 273 Dearborn Court, Geneva, IL 60134. To make a gift by phone, call (630) 443-6910.
