Why Leon serves on the Board

I joined the board in 2013 while our firm was developing a Whole Foods grocery store in the historically disinvested neighborhood of Englewood on Chicago’s south side, and as we continue to open grocery stores in Chicago’s food deserts, the Greater Chicago Food Depository’s extensive network and diligent advocacy, makes them the ideal partner to work with in the battle against food insecurity.
