More than 150 volunteers helped pack boxes at the Northern Illinois Food Bank on Nov. 2 for the kick off of the food bank’s Holiday Meal Box campaign.

GENEVA – More than 150 volunteers from Alpha Baking, Frito Lay, The Jel Sert Company, Jewel-Osco, Meijer, PepsiCo and Sam’s Club, as well as individuals and families, gathered at the Northern Illinois Food Bank on Nov. 2 to assemble thousands of holiday meal boxes for families in need.

According to a news release, volunteers packed 6,800 Holiday Meal Boxes with stuffing and potato mixes; canned vegetables and fruits; gravy; pumpkin-pie mix; gelatin; cake mix and frosting; and coffee.

The Holiday Meal Boxes will be paired with a frozen turkey and distributed through the food bank’s partner food pantries.

According to the release, this holiday season, the food bank hopes to distribute more than 30,000 meal boxes – each containing enough food to feed a family of eight.

To support the programs, donations are needed.

A $30 donation provides  a meal box for a family.
