The Food Depository congratulates the top teams, and thanks each of the businesses that participated in this year’s competition. Every team made a tremendous impact, with an average of $2,500 raised per team. Many businesses found creative ways to fundraise, including bake-offs, internal fundraising competitions, and hosting luncheons.
The LunchTime to End Hunger campaign encouraged participants to donate what they would normally spend on lunch for a week to the Food Depository. Funds raised will provide the equivalent of more than 276,000 meals for children this summer. This support makes an incredible impact as the Food Depository serves 812,000 clients each year, or 1 in 6 Cook County residents.
