Vernon Hills, IL – Over two evenings in November, Manhard Consulting associates from our Vernon Hills and Lombard offices and their family members volunteered at the Northern Illinois Food Bank. Staff members worked together to pack approximately 5,500 pounds of bulk granola, instant breakfast packs and other food items in ready-to-go boxes. More than 1,800 boxes were prepared for our neighbors in the greater Chicago area that suffer from food insecurity.
“My goal in arranging this volunteer event was to share a fun and meaningful family tradition with my co-workers,” said Tim Murphy, survey manager for Manhard Consulting. “All those who came and worked together left with a very a positive feeling knowing that their efforts will make a difference in the lives of others. I hope to make this an annual event!”
The Northern Illinois Food Bank (NIFB) works to solve hunger by providing nutritious meals to those in need in Boone, DuPage, DeKalb, Grundy, Kane, Kankakee, Kendall, Lake, McHenry, Ogle, Stephenson, Will & Winnebago counties. As a nonprofit organization with a goal of solving hunger in a 13-county service area, the NIFB relies on community partners – the local food pantries and feeding programs, food manufacturers and retailers, companies, foundations and individuals who join them in their vision for no one to be hungry in northern Illinois.
