The Hoopis Group Charity Club volunteered at the Greater Chicago Food Depository. They helped to sort and pack 3,780 pounds of food to be distributed to shelters and food pantries in the Chicagoland area.
The Greater Chicago Food Depository is Chicago’s food bank. They provide food for hungry people while striving to end hunger in our community.
They do this in partnership with 700 agencies and programs including pantries, soup kitchens, shelters and responses for children, older adults and veterans. This network distributes food where it is needed most throughout Cook County.
Since 1979, the Food Depository has made a daily impact on hunger across Cook County. Last year, the Food Depository distributed nearly 70 million pounds of food, 38% of which was fresh produce. Every day they distribute the equivalent of 159,000 meals.
Their impact adds up and we have been recognized as one of the leading charities in Chicago. Learn more about how they make an impact on hunger every day.
The Food Depository is a member of Feeding America, the national network of food banks.
