Accessibility Statement

The Greater Chicago Food Depository is committed to ensuring digital accessibility for people with disabilities. We continue to make changes to ensure content and functionality is accessible for all, aligning with the relevant accessibility standards.

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) define requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA.

Wherever possible, the Food Depository will aim to adhere to level AA of the WCAG 2.1 guidelines, which states that sites should be:

  • Perceivable – Information and user interface components must be presentable to users in ways they can perceive.
  • Operable – User interface components and navigation must be operable.
  • Understandable – Information and the operation of the user interface must be understandable.
  • Robust – Content must be robust enough that it can be interpreted reliably by a wide variety of user agents, including assistive technologies.

We welcome your feedback on the accessibility of the Food Depository website. If you have experienced any accessibility barriers while using any part of our site, please send us a message or call us at 773-247-3663.
