Greater Chicago Food Depository
2016 Community Partner
The Greater Food Depository is part of a united community effort working to bring food, dignity and hope to our Cook County neighbors. They act as a hub for a network of more than 700 food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters and other programs. These programs provide food where it’s most needed. They also address the root causes of hunger. Public benefits outreach and job training programs offer support for their neighbors to overcome poverty.
As the face of hunger in our community has changed, the Food Depository has evolved. Their programs address the specific needs of diverse groups, including children, older adults and veterans.
By taking hunger off the table, the Food Depository enable families to focus on other priorities, like education, growth and security. They enable communities to face their challenges with confidence. Today and in the long term, providing nutritious food is an investment in health and hope for our neighbors and our community.
