Donate Food

When your food drive is over, consider dropping off your food donations at the Food Depository or at one of our public drop off locations - use the map below to find a location near you. The Food Depository can receive your food donations any business day between 7 am and 5 pm. You can also schedule a pickup.

Our fantastic food drive transportation partner, Garvey's Office Products, will pick up your donation and deliver it to the Greater Chicago Food Depository on your behalf. PLEASE NOTE: Due to the volume of donated food we receive through Garvey's pickups we cannot guarantee weighing individual donations.
