Campaign: 1 City, 1 Food Drive

November 1, 2014 through December 31, 2014
1 City, 1 Food Drive is our largest annual food drive initiative. The goal of this campaign is to call every Chicagoan to join us in the fight against hunger by donating one bag of food, one hour of their time, or one dollar. Through a combined effort of more than 500 community food drives and 10 to 15 larger strategic food drive partners and events, our goal this year is to collect 1.5 million meals.

This year we have over 225 public drop off locations where anyone can give a food donation. We’d also encourage you to consider organizing your own food drive. Help us make sure no one goes hungry this holiday season.


How to Get Involved

Your donation goes further through a virtual food drive. Because of the Food Depository's wholesale purchasing ability and efficient distribution model, a virtual food drive gift provides more food than a traditional food drive—doubling or even tripling the impact of your generosity. And it's a fun 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.


For every $1 donated, the Food Depository can provide three meals for our neighbors in need.
Every day, the Greater Chicago Food Depository works to end hunger in our community. Many supporters make this impact possible.
