Northern Illinois Food Bank - Senior Hunger Ambassador
Along with our 800 network members, including food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, schools, youth and senior sites, the Food Bank provides nutritious food for 71,500 different individuals weekly across 13 counties. Our 7,000 square mile service area stretches our staff to adequately build awareness of the need for hunger relief and engage supporters in every corner. With the help of VISTA team member’s, we will increase support to help us towards our strategic goal of providing 75 million meals by 2020 through volunteering and financial support.

Member Duties : The Senior Hunger Program Ambassador will research and review senior hunger programs in each of our 13 counties. He/she would visit all the locations where the food bank currently provides senior food boxes or mobile pantries to review impact and effectiveness. Focus groups would be conducted to determine whether we are meeting the needs of the senior residents. He/she would also investigate senior food programs at other food banks to see if there are models we could adopt. After gathering this information, the VISTA would make a recommendation for increased programming at the food bank for this vulnerable population, which could be implemented in FY 18. We are seeking applicants with a passion for helping the hungry, an interest in the senior population, strong organizational skills, the ability to work independently and a respect for volunteer commitment and dedication to their community. Transportation and a willingness to travel throughout the assigned area are required.
