Campaign: 1 City, 1 Food Drive

November 1, 2017 through December 31, 2017
1 City, 1 Food Drive is our largest annual food drive initiative. The goal of this campaign is to call on every Chicagoan to join us in the fight against hunger by donating 1 dollar, 1 bag of food or 1 hour of their time.

Through a combined effort of more than 500 community food drives, 10 to 15 larger strategic food drive partners and events, and more than 225 public drop off locations throughout Cook County, we reached our goal last year to collect 1.5 million meals!


How to Get Involved

Your donation goes further through this virtual food drive. Thanks to the Food Depository's wholesale purchasing power we're able to provide 3 meals for every $1 donated - doubling or even tripling the amount of food your dollar can purchase at a regular grocery store. Every dollar raised through this virtual food drive will be used exclusively to buy nutritious food for our community.
Thank you for your support.


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