Campaign: Spring GCFD Food Drive 2018

March 1, 2018 through June 20, 2018
The Greater Chicago Food Depository believes that everyone should have access to more fresh fruits, vegetables, dairy and protein. The goal of this campaign is to call on every Chicagoan to join us in the fight against hunger!

Through a combined effort of more than 500 virtual food drives, 10 to 15 larger strategic traditional food drive partners and events, and more than 225 public drop off locations throughout Cook County, we surpassed last year's goal and collected 1.65 million meals!

How to Get Involved

Your donation goes further through a 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 a virtual food drive will be used exclusively to buy nutritious food for our community.
