September is Hunger Action Month – a nationwide effort to motivate local action to end hunger. The Greater Chicago Food Depository is issuing a call-to-action for everyone in Cook County to mobilize in the fight against hunger.
Hunger is a real problem with real faces. In Cook County, more than 807,000 men, women and children – 1 in 6 people – are unaware of when or where their next meal will come from. More than 250,000 children are facing hunger in our community. Children like Oscar – who was a regular at one of the Food Depository’s Lunch Bus stops in South Lawndale this summer.

Help children like Oscar by taking action against hunger in our community. The Food Depository has put together tips and tools for you, your family and friends to become a part of Hunger Action Month.
Your voice counts. Your actions can make a difference. ‘Do it for Chicago.’
