The Food Truck Rally 5K is proud to partner with the Northern Illinois Food Bank as the sole charity for this event. The Northern Illinois Food Bank leads the northern Illinois community in solving hunger by providing nutritious meals to those in need through innovative programs and partnerships.
Northern Illinois Food Bank is the source of nutritious food, innovative feeding programs, and hope for more than 71,000 people each week. As a nonprofit organization with a goal of solving hunger in our 13-county service area, we rely on community partners – the local food pantries and feeding programs, food manufacturers and retailers, companies, foundations and individuals who join with us in our vision for no one to be hungry in northern Illinois. For more information, please visit the Northern Illinois Food Bank Website.
CANNED FOOD DRIVE
We’re dedicated to promoting and highlighting the fight against hunger. Each event will feature the local food bank as our sole beneficiary. A canned food drive will take place at each event, encouraging all participants and spectators to bring all they can. It then becomes a competition – ranking which Food Truck Rally 5K event (city) can donate the most food and money. At the end of the year, the winning city’s food bank will receive an additional donation and nationwide bragging rights!
