Review for Northern Illinois Food Bank, Geneva, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Northern Illinois Food Bank is one of my favorite local charities. With one in six people in Illinois being food insecure, their work in distributing food is so important! Many people aren't aware that NIFB also has a positive effect on the environment. We use a tremendous amount of fresh water and energy resources in producing food, yet, as a society, we throw away almost half of what we produce. Of the nearly 35 million pounds of food distributed by NIFB last year, 2/3 of it otherwise would have been thrown away. By saving food, NIFB also saves resources. In addition to their great work, NIFB is a fun place to volunteer with a group. I had my birthday party there 2 years ago. My friends volunteered, then came over for a barbecue. Keep up the good work!
