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 a virtual food drive. Due to the Food Depository's wholesale purchasing ability and efficient distribution model, a virtual food drive donation 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.

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