Additional Ways to Support Our Mission to End Hunger

Attend an event, buy Food Depository merch and support our mission when you shop and dine.

Cause Marketing Partnerships

End Hunger By Supporting Local Businesses

Local, community-minded businesses support our neighbors throughout Cook County with cause marketing partnerships. When you shop with our partners, your purchase will support our mission to end hunger and its root causes.

Connect Roasters

For each pound of Ethiopian Guji or Congo Umoji coffees sold, Connect Roasters donates three meals to our mission.

Throughout 2024, monthly ice cream social fundraisers at Jeni's locations across Chicagoland will donate 25% of that location's sales. Check our event calendar for details.
