On December 2, 2016 a team of nearly 70 employees from Discover Credit Card Services came together to pack 30,000 meals of Macaroni and Cheese. The exceeded their goal in record time packaging 31,320 nutritious meals.These meals were picked up by the Northern Illinois Food the same day and will be scheduled to be delivered throughout 800 food pantries that the Northern Illinois Food Bank serves.
Northern Illinois Food Bank serves over 600,000 food insecure individuals in 13 Counties. Without the support of Volunteers and Corporate sponsors such as Discover, The Northern Illinois Food Bank would not be able to provide these meals to our hungry neighbors.
