Last fiscal year, the Food Depository distributed 64 million pounds of food – including 21 million pounds of fresh produce – to hungry people in our community. The food, both donated and purchased, is distributed through 650 programs with a network of 400 pantries, soup kitchens and shelters in Cook County. The Food Depository is committed to providing safe and wholesome food everyday to individuals in need across our community.
The annual Silliker Food Safety Audit provides an impartial and independent assessment of safety programs for ten different areas throughout the Food Depository in accordance with recognized industry and government requirements. This achievement reflects the Food Depository’s strong leadership and commitment to excellence as Chicago's food bank.
