Join the USGBC – Illinois for a Tour and Volunteer Event at the Northern Illinois Food Bank.

Recently the Food Bank opened their new facility, received their LEED Gold certification and won a USGBC-Illinois Emerald Award.  The Emerald Awards are intended to recognize outstanding individuals, organizations, and projects from across Illinois that are advancing both buildings and communities that are sustainable, prosperous and healthy.  Enjoy a tour of the facility led by the project managers and LEED administrator from Ryan Companies which will focus on construction elements and LEED building attributes. You will also have the opportunity to contribute your skills as a volunteer to this worthwhile mission if you desire.

The Northern Illinois Food Bank distributed more than 34 million pounds of food last year and currently serves over 61,000 individuals every week through a network of more than 660 food-assistance sites (food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, youth activity centers and other food assistance sites) in 13 northern Illinois counties.

This program has been approved for 1.0 GBCI CE and AIA LU|HSW|SD hours.
