Ways To Give

ways to contribute to the community pantry

There are many ways that you can help end hunger in our community and empower those who we serve. Whether you make a donation, organize a food drive, or attend an event, realize that your kindness will make a difference in the lives of our neighbors in need. Thanks to our relationship with Northern Illinois Food Bank, Loaves & Fishes is able to turn a $1 donation into $10 worth of food; moreover, 97% of of our funding directly supports our programs while 3% is used to cover administrative and fundraising expenses. Your support is crucial to our progress and success, and we look forward to partnering with you to end hunger!

These matching programs have been made part of many corporate giving initiatives both to extend the reach of corporate giving and to encourage employees to be actively involved in supporting their communities.

Please check with your human/community resources department, and ask them for details on how they will match your contribution to Loaves & Fishes. It may be necessary to provide your employer with Loaves & Fishes’s Employment Identification Number: 36-3786777.
