Feeding Children During the School Year
Our partnerships with Chicago Public Schools and other local organizations ensure that children have the nutritious food they need to grow and succeed.
Healthy Kids Market
Healthy Kids Markets began as a partnership between the Greater Chicago Food Depository and Chicago Public Schools in 2010. Healthy Kids Markets are market-style food distributions located in schools. They provide nutritious food to students and families who may not be able to visit a traditional food pantry.
The Food Depository provides a variety of healthy foods to stock the market, including:
- fresh fruits
- fresh vegetables
- shelf-stable items
- peanut butter
- and more.
Volunteers and staff from the school unload, set up and operate the market.
