You may know where your next meal is coming from but unfortunately 500,000 people – or 1 in 8 — in northern Illinois face hunger. Hunger is present in every neighborhood. It quite possibly affects your neighbors, co-workers, and many of the people you interact with on a daily basis like the cashier at the grocery store, the waitress at your favorite restaurant, and the landscaper who mows your lawn.

Northern Illinois Food Bank provides food to more than 60,000 hungry neighbors each week, an increase of 65 percent since 2006. Overhead Garage Door Inc. is proud to support the Northern Illinois Food Bank and has pledged to donate $500 to the organization, plus $1 for each “like” it receives on its Facebook page (up to 2,000 likes). Overhead Garage Door Inc. is proud to be a part of many of the communities that the Northern Illinois Food Bank serves and believes that it has an obligation to help those who are most in need.
