Making an Impact Together: Welcome to the 2016 Annual Report

Hello I’m Kate mayor executive director
and CEO of the Greater Chicago Food Depository. Welcome to our online annual
report. Below you’ll find highlights and stories of the impact we made together
last fiscal year. While reports showed the economy is improving, the reality we
faced last year and continue to face Every day is one of a high level of need,
yet our response was stronger than ever. we distributed nearly 70 million pounds
of food including 25 million pounds of fresh produce. We expanded our response at the intersection of health and hunger as we officially launched our fresh
truck in partnership with community health clinics. Our summer program served more than 560,000 meals to children and we successfully advocated for
legislation that increased access to snap benefits and a school breakfast for
students statewide. Those are just a few of the ways we made an impact on hunger
in 2015. None of our accomplishments this year would have been possible without
the incredible support of people like you who believe as we do that no one
should go hungry on behalf of the men women and children we serve thank you
for your support this year
