To end hunger for good, we need strong public policy. We advocate for policies that protect individuals and families from hunger. Raise your voice and let your elected officials know that you support hunger relief programs.
Our Policy Priorities
The Food Depository mobilizes the public to help end hunger. At the federal, state, and local level, our policy priorities include:
- Maintaining and strengthening hunger relief programs
- Increasing the amount of healthy food that is available and affordable to all
- Ensuring that healthy meals are available in schools for children in need
Take Action to End Hunger
Public Charge Update
The Greater Chicago Food Depository advocates for immigrants and their families to safely seek food assistance through programs like the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). The former administration toughened restrictions on access to federal aid for some immigrants making it harder for some people to apply for programs like Medicaid and SNAP. We are grateful that the U.S. Department of Justice reserved this course. Here’s our statement on the reversal of public charge rule change.
