Welcome to The Friendship Center's page for the 29th Annual Greater Chicago Food Depository Hunger Walk.
The funds we raise will directly support the both the North Park and Lincoln Square Friendship Center and provide meals for hundreds of families in our community and throughout Cook County.
The Hunger Walk is an annual 5K (3.1 miles) event to raise funds and awareness for the Food Depository's work in Cook County and network of 650 agencies (food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters). The Food Depository covers the overhead expenses for the event so all funds raised can be divided amongst the agencies to help supplement their budgets or, in some cases, serve as their entire annual budget. This is the largest one-day anti-hunger event in Chicago that brings together all of Cook County.
We hope we can count on your support. Your gift will directly support both Friendship Center sites and hundreds of families in the North Park, Albany Park and Licoln Square communities.
