Food is great! We all enjoy a delicious home cooked meal after a long day at work, or a night out on the town at a classy restaurant with friends and family. Sadly, not everyone is fortunate to have a stable food supply, and many people go to bed hungry at night, even in our local neighborhoods. To help address hunger, we invite you to support the Greater Chicago Food Depository to help our less fortunate neighbors.
GCFD Mission Statement: “The Greater Chicago Food Depository, Chicago's food bank, is a nonprofit food distribution and training center providing food for hungry people while striving to end hunger in our community. The Food Depository distributes donated and purchased food through a network of 650 pantries, soup kitchens and shelters to 678,000 adults and children in Cook County every year. Last year, the Food Depository distributed 65 million pounds of nonperishable food and fresh produce, dairy products and meat. The Food Depository's programs and services for children, older adults and the unemployed and underemployed address the root causes of hunger.”
