Elected Officials at the 9/11 National Day of Service
Last Friday, we welcomed volunteers to all four of our centers for special volunteer shifts as a part of the 9/11 National Day of Service. We had multiple elected officials join us throughout the day to help serve our neighbors by sorting and packing groceries. Pictured above are Rep. Michelle Mussman and Rep. Barbara Hernandez (left photo, second from left and first from right, respectively), Congresswoman Lauren Underwood (top right photo), and Senator Jim Oberweis (bottom right photo).
Launching our Advocacy Web Page

This page will help keep you up-to-date on the advocacy activities happening at the Food Bank, inform you about our key legislative issue areas, and help you become a Hunger Advocate.

This Hunger Action Day, we turned our social media channels orange for hunger awareness! Pictured below are posts from two of our elected officials - Congressman Sean Casten and Congresswoman Cheri Bustos - who helped us promote the day and spread awareness of hunger in our communities!
