Great Hearts Initiatives | Greater Chicago Food Depository

Mission

We are Chicago’s food bank — a nonprofit food distribution and training center that provides food for hungry people while striving to end hunger in our community.

The Food Depository, founded in 1979, makes a daily impact across Cook County with a network of 650 pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, mobile programs, children’s programs, older adult programs and innovative responses that address the root causes of hunger. Last year, the Food Depository distributed 70 million pounds of shelf-stable food, fresh produce, dairy products and meat, the equivalent of 160,000 meals every day.

Great Hearts Community Recommendations

"I have friends who have been helped at Lakeview Pantry, which receives food from GCFD. I've also been able to drop off food that I couldn't use. I'm glad this exists to address food insecurity in our city." - Elizabeth Harper
