Help us Celebrate Food Checkout Day by Partnering with us to Support Ronald McDonald House Charities®

01/02/2018 @ 12:00 pm | By Bona Heinsohn

With Food Checkout Day scheduled for February 6, 2018 Farm Bureau families and partners have joined together to assist families during the most difficult time of their lives, when a child is ill.  Food Checkout Day highlights the safe and nutritious food that local farmers grow.


Through YOUR support we’ve been able to ensure that a healthy, nutritious meal is not a concern of theirs during these times.  Help us to collect non-perishable food, money, and pop tabs.  Food, cash and pop tab donations can be dropped off or mailed to:


Cook County Farm Bureau®

6438 Joliet Road

Countryside, Illinois 60525

(708) 354-3276


In 2017, we were able to donate over $10,000 to the five area Ronald McDonald Houses.  Due to your efforts, Ronald McDonald Houses remain open to all families regardless of an individual’s ability to pay.

Please partner with us to raise much needed funds for the Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana in support of Food Checkout Day. All proceeds raised will benefit the charity. 


Sponsorships are available at the following levels:

 Veggies Sponsor

Includes advance promotions, event signage, and media inclusion.


 Sweet Corn Sponsor

Includes promotion on cart signs at Chicago and Oak Lawn grocery store events, signage, and media inclusion.


Grains Sponsor

Includes event signage and media inclusion.



For two weeks prior to Food Checkout Day, Cook County Farm Bureau® invites any sponsors, organizations, or groups to help us celebrate Food Checkout Day by submitting a picture for use on social media to help us “countdown” the days to Food Checkout Day.
