On November 27th, Day of Giving, EIF has two ways you can volunteer your time to help alleviate local hunger:

Day of Giving

EIF will be collecting food and funds from 6:00am - 7:00pm on November 27th at remote locations in Champaign, Charleston, and Danville. We want to make donating as easy as possible and will be accepting drive up donations for the 13-hour time period.  Shifts will be 1.5 hours but volunteers are welcome to sign up for more than one shift.  This volunteer opportunity is ideal for groups, individuals and families. 

We will be collecting donation in the following locations:

EIF will be hosting a Regular & Family Repack on Tuesday, November 27th. The Family Repack is open to families with children 5 year's old and older.  The Regular Repack is open to children 10 year's old and older. Children 5 - 13 years old MUST be accompanied by their parent.  

All Repacks are held at our facility located at 2405 N. Shore Dr., Urbana, IL 61802.   


  • If you are a new volunteer, please please be sure to fill out a volunteer registration form before attending the repack.  
  • If you are a group coordinator, please be sure everyone in your group has filled out a volunteer registration form and forward these repack instructions to your group.
  • To make sure we don't go over room capacity, please do not attend a repack without registering first  
  • All volunteers MUST wear closed-toed shoes. Any volunteer not wearing closed-toed shoes will not be able to repack.
  • All volunteers must remove all jewelry.
  • We heavily depend on volunteers to repack bulk food product so if you register and then can’t attend please email us at volunteer(at)eifoodbank.org.
  • If you show any signs of cold, flu or sickness please abstain from repackaging food.
  • If you have any food allergies please check with us at volunteer(at)eifoodbank.org as to what will be repacked.
  • Please arrive to your shift on time. Explaining repack instructions to one full group is easier on us and decreases the likelihood of repackaging/inventory errors.
  • Any volunteer 5 to 13 years old should be accompanied by a responsible adult.
