Greater Chicago Food Depository Food Drives (In partnership with CDW) -
            Make an immediate difference in the fight against hunger in our community.

For every $1 donated, the Food Depository can provide three meals for our neighbors in need.

Impact Our Community

Hosting a food drive is a fantastic idea! Whether you host a traditional food drive or a virtual campaign, we are grateful for your support. Your donation through a traditional food drive provides shelf-stable and nutritious food to our community. Through a virtual food drive, the Food Depository's wholesale purchasing ability and efficient distribution model enables your donation to double or even triple the impact of your generosity. And it's a fun and easy way to make a donation! Every dollar raised through the virtual food drive is used to buy nutritious food for individuals and families at risk of hunger in our community.


Every day, the Greater Chicago Food Depository works to end hunger in our community. Many supporters make this impact possible.
