Where to Turn for Food Assistance

April 6, 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted every Chicago area family, but for those in need who have lost their jobs and are struggling to feed their families, this crisis has been even more difficult. But help is available.

If you or anyone you know is in need of food assistance you can find food near you by clicking: chicagosfoodbank.org/find-food/.

This directory is provided by The Greater Chicago Food Depository, Chicago’s food bank. Since 1978 this not-for-profit organization has been providing food for hungry people while striving to end hunger in our community. It is the hub for more than 700 food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, and other programs. These programs provide food where it’s most needed. As our community faces unprecedented challenges presented by this disease outbreak, the Greater Chicago Food Depository is hard at work responding to the increased need for food.

If you are willing and able to assist others, consider a donation to the Food Depository. “Every contribution provides food and hope,” the organization says. “No matter how you choose to give, know that you’re making an immediate and lasting impact on hunger in our community.”
