November's Food Drive!
National Food of the Month -----  Help Us Provide Fresh Fruit and Vegetables!

Help us provide fresh and nutritious produce during the month of October!

Fresh fruit and vegetables are a huge staple at the Food Depository. A great source of nutrition, fiber and vitamins, the Food Depository distributed 25 million pounds of fresh produce last year!

Join our November Drive and help us nourish our neighbors struggling with hunger.

Greater Chicago Food Depository virtual food drives make it easy to help Cook County families in need. With just a few clicks, you can purchase nutritious fresh produce and protein, start your own virtual food drive or host a traditional food drive.

Virtual food drives offer corporations great opportunities for: corporate social responsibility - employee engagement - building your brand's awareness as a Greater Chicago Food Depository supporter

Virtual food drives offer everyday donors great opportunities for: birthdays - wedding registries - Bar and Bat Mitzvah's

Thanks to the Food Depository's wholesale purchasing power every $1 you donate can help provide 3 meals - doubling or even tripling the amount of food your dollar can purchase at a regular grocery store - 100% of virtual food drive proceeds are used to purchase food.
