Thank you for your interest in becoming a cause-related marketing partner of the Greater Chicago Food Depository. Cause-related marketing partnerships with the Food Depository provide an opportunity to raise awareness of hunger in our community while engaging your employees and consumers to help feed hungry people.


The support of our cause related marketing partners has been invaluable as the Food Depository's services have expanded to meet rising need in Cook County. Here are a few examples of cause related marketing activities.

ABC7: During the holiday season, ABC7 Chicago partners to collect food and funds while raising awareness of hunger in Chicago. ABC7 news personalities air live reports from grocery partners while shoppers are encouraged to give nonperishable items and money.

Groupon: Groupon has partnered with the Greater Chicago Food Depository through Daily Deals on the Groupon Grassroots charitable site. All Chicago subscribers had the chance to donate $10 to help provide fresh produce to low-income families. To date, Groupon Grassroots has raised more than $28,000 for the Food Depository.

Whole Foods Market: Chicago-area Whole Foods Markets this past holiday season named the Food Depository the beneficiary of their Feed 4 More campaign. Customers were given the opportunity to donate to the Food Depository at the register. The campaign raised more than $127,000 for the Food Depository.
