Volunteers provide vital support to further the Food Depository’s mission of “providing food for hungry people while striving to end hunger in our community.” From helping repackage food to distributing food to those in need, volunteers make the Food Depository’s impact in Cook County possible. Over the course of FY17, the Food Depository received the support of nearly 23,000 unduplicated volunteers. To expand the volunteer program further, the Food Depository is looking to engage additional youth in our mission, and in turn help ignite a lifelong passion to serve others and end hunger.
