Welcome to the Greater Chicago Food Depository!

The Greater Chicago Food Depository is Cook County’s local food bank. Working with a network of more than 700 partner agencies and programs including food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters, the organization distributes 160,000 meals every day, striving to end hunger in its community.

The organization has led an AmeriCorps program since 2009.  Members have assisted benefits outreach efforts, coordinated food pantry operations, and supported programs that aim to alleviate hunger among older adults, children, and veterans.

We’re so excited to be partnering with another nutrition-focused national service program to help it monitor, report, and multiply its impact through the AmeriCorps Impact Suite.
