Lift Your Voice on Video

Go Orange to Raise Awareness

On September 13, wear orange during Hunger Action Day to show your support for hunger relief efforts. One in six of Cook County residents face hunger every day. Share the facts and stories of hunger on your preferred social media channel. Or, change your social media profile picture to the Food Depository’s orange logo to raise awareness and let your friends know you believe no one should go hungry. Download the orange logo.

Start or Support a Food Drive

Hosting a food drive is a great way to make an immediate impact on hunger in our community. Learn more about food drives. 

1 in 6 of our neighbors turn to the Food Depository every year. Now is the time to get involved in the fight against hunger. Join us this September to help make an impact during Hunger Action Month.
