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.
Since 1979, the Food Depository has made a daily impact on hunger across Cook County. Last year, the Food Depository distributed nearly 70 million pounds of food, 38% of which was fresh produce. Every day we distribute the equivalent of 159,000 meals. The Food Depository is a member of Feeding America, the national network of food banks.

All meals are cooked and served by volunteers. Inspiration Cafe is open only to participants in Inspiration Corporation's programs or individuals enrolled in case management with partner agencies, all of whom are working on stability by increasing income and/or becoming permanently and stably housed.
In addition to offering meals, Inspiration Cafe operates a food pantry that is open to Inspiration Corporation participants.
