Greater Chicago Food Depository
The Greater Chicago Food Depository is Chicago’s food bank. We provide food for hungry people while striving to end hunger in our community.
We do this in partnership with 700 agencies and programs including pantries, soup kitchens, shelters and responses for children, older adults and veterans. This network distributes food where it is needed most throughout Cook County.
The Cafe provides restaurant-style meals to homeless or low-income men, women, and families in a therapeutic community that promotes dignity and respect. All meals are cooked and served by volunteers.
In addition to offering meals, Inspiration Cafe operates a food pantry that is open to Inspiration Corporation participants.
Pilot Light supports effective teaching and learning in the classroom through a cohesive model for classroom education, incorporating food as a lens for traditional subjects such as Math, Reading, History, and Science.
Our current program helps our teachers meet academic and nutrition requirements while creating an exciting and meaningful learning experience around food for their students.
