Community Outreach

Imagine not knowing how to put your next meal on the table, or having to choose between paying rent and buying food. In our own backyard, for nearly 600,000 individuals, this is a reality. Children are going to bed hungry, older adults must make tough choices between paying for healthcare or groceries, and hardworking individuals work multiple jobs and are still struggling to put food on their table.
To change lives locally, one meal at a time, we need your help. Northern Illinois Food Bank and Pheasant Run Resort are committed to making a positive impact in the St Charles, Illinois community and we're asking for your help.

Joy of Giving Program

With our Joy of Giving program, we are able to offer non-profit organizations a discounted package to purchase for your cause while giving back 20% of the proceeds to Northern Illinois Food Bank. Together we can make a positive impact in our community for the children who are going to bed hungry, older adults making tough choices between paying for healthcare or groceries, and hardworking individuals working multiple jobs and struggling to put food on their table.



When you donate your time, money, and food to Northern Illinois Food Bank, your donation helps a hungry neighbor in northern Illinois. All donations made to Northern Illinois Food Bank are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.
Your donation is an investment in the efforts of the Northern Illinois Food Bank. For every $1 donated, they can provide $8 worth of groceries to our hungry neighbors in northern Illinois.
We've set up a donations page for you to get right to the heart of it. Click through to "shop the aisles" of most needed items to make a difference in the lives of thousands of people in northern Illinois who are hungry.
  • $20 provides a monthly food box to a senior who is unable to visit a food pantry.

Team Building

If you're looking for a unique addition to your conference or meeting at Pheasant Run Resort, consider a team building event at the Northern Illinois Food Bank.
The Northern Illinois Food Bank West Suburban Center is located just nine minutes from Pheasant Run Resort. For a meaningful outing, bring your group to volunteer for a group packing session. Your team members will build camaraderie through volunteering together to sort and repack food donations for distribution to the more than 800 feeding programs in Northern Illinois Food Bank's network. By working together, everyone practices teamwork while helping solve hunger in our community.
Group tours are also available.
