2020 – 2021 OVERVIEW
The Greater Chicago Food Depository is a not- for-profit, tax-exempt (Section 501(c)(3)) food bank serving Chicago and Cook County. As Cook County’s leading hunger-relief organization, the Food Depository is part of a united community effort working to bring food, dignity and hope to our neighbors.
The Food Depository is a charter member of Feeding America, a national network of food banks and food-rescue organizations. The Food Depository solicits, obtains, and distributes donated and purchased foods to member agencies including soup kitchens, pantries and shelters and to other feeding organizations. These agencies provide food to those at risk of hunger. The Food Depository’s fiscal year ends June 30.
In fiscal year 21, we distributed 97.5 million meals to our neighbors throughout Chicago and Cook County – the largest amount in our 42-year history. Thank you to everyone who helped make our response possible.
