Federal Employees Turn to Food Pantries

As the ongoing partial shutdown of the federal government continues, federal workers are turning to food assistance programs. The Greater Chicago Food Depository and our network of partner agencies are responding to this need. Federal workers struggling to afford food are welcome at any of our food pantries and programs: find one near you.
Our Response in the News
Local and national media outlets have covered the Food Depository’s response to the government shutdown.
What You Can Do
The federal government shutdown is already increasing hunger. The longer it goes on, the worse it will get. The Food Depository calls on the Senate and White House to end this unnecessary hardship for millions of Americans. We encourage anyone who is concerned about the effects of this shutdown to contact their elected officials to urge a swift resolution.
