Senior Grocery Market is a volunteer opportunity seeking individuals to assist with food distribution to seniors at Northern Illinois Food Bank’s Northwest Center in Rockford. The Senior Grocery Market allows seniors (Age 60 and over) to take home a variety of nutritious foods. The distribution is set up like a food pantry. Volunteers will assist seniors with their grocery needs, such as selecting food items, packing the items and/or carrying groceries to their car. In addition, the volunteers will be expected to assist Northern Illinois Food Bank with the setting up and taking down of the Senior Grocery Market. All volunteers interested must be able to lift at least 30lbs. Hours of volunteering are 8:00am-12:00pm; 1st and 3rd Thursday of every month. Whether you have a free day on your calendar or our interested in being a regular volunteer, we welcome you and look forward to working beside you in the effort to alleviate hunger amongst the senior population.
