Each year, BOMA/Chicago members unite to help feed the food insecure of Cook County through our partnership with the Greater Chicago Food Depository (GCFD). The food drive is held during November and December of each year. BOMA/Chicago has partnered with the GCFD since 2008 and during this eight year tenure, we have collected 569,391 pounds of food (474,493 meals). In 2016, we collected 149,730 pounds of food for Chicagoland individuals and families in need. Thank you for all of your donations during the 2016 holiday season and for spending your time promoting this charitable cause to your tenants.
