Our Charity Partners

Our vision at Northern Illinois Food Bank is for everyone in Northern Illinois to have the food they need to thrive.  A 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and proud member of Feeding America, we serve our neighbors in 13 counties with dignity, equity and convenience, providing 250,000 meals a day.  We bring together manufacturers, local and corporate grocers, area farmers, corporations, foundations, and individuals who donate food and funding, and each week nearly 1,000 volunteers help us evaluate, repack, and distribute food. We also proudly partner with more than 900 food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, and youth and senior feeding programs to provide nutritious food and resources.

90% of sales proceeds always goes to our charity partners.

Established in 2007 to raise the quality of educational support for children and young adults with autism, Turning Pointe Autism Foundation creates best practice learning environments to increase independence, and improve communication and socially appropriate behaviors.  As a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, we rely on the partnership of volunteers, donors, school districts and Employment Partners to ensure a sustainable and meaningful future for our mission and students.  The funds received from The Birdhouse Lady go to scholarships which help underprivileged individuals attend the school.

Sharing Connections brings together community members by enabling families and businesses to share their gently used furniture, household items and clothing with families needing assistance. This is a unique opportunity for the community to directly make an impact by passing on something they no longer need to make a difference in the life of a family.  The families served by SC include the previously homeless, unemployed and working poor, veterans, victims of domestic violence, immigrants, individuals with mental or physical disabilities, victims of fire, flood and natural disasters, etc.

We are passionate about helping those experiencing food insecurity ... passionate about making sure those who have fallen on bad times receive proper nutrition ... passionate about ensuring children have access to healthy breakfast, lunch and dinner so they can do their best at school ... and simply put, passionate about making hunger history in our community.  We provide groceries and encouragement to neighbors who have lost jobs, are disabled and cannot work, are senior citizens living on a fixed income, or simply have difficulty making ends meet.  We are there for these neighbors.  We are there to be the smile in their day.
