2020 Virtual GCFD Food Drive: Donate Through December 18!

Over 130 BOMA/Chicago members have signed up to participate in the 2020 GCFD Virtual Holiday Food Drive. The drive will start on November 9 and end on December 18. Your monetary donations will go a very long way! Thanks to the GCFD's wholesale purchasing power, every $1 you donate provides three meals – doubling or even tripling the amount of food your dollar can purchase at a regular grocery store. Also, 100% of virtual food drive proceeds are used to purchase food!

ONE out of SIX Chicagoans face hunger every day. Help us in the fight against hunger. DONATE today! You can view all of the BOMA/Chicago members hosting a drive by clicking here. You are welcome to make a donation to any of these participants!
