Registration Now Open for the 2019 GCFD Holiday Food Drive!

BOMA/Chicago has partnered with the Greater Chicago Food Depository (GCFD) since 2008 for the annual holiday food drive. During this time, we have provided 915,412 pounds of food to hungry Chicagoans.

Each year, we continue to beat the collection goals we set for members. This year, we plan to once again meet or exceed our goal to collect 130,000 pounds of food that will go directly to those facing hunger throughout Chicago.

Are you up to this year's challenge? If so, make a difference by registering your building for the GCFD food drive today! You must register your building by October 29. The GCFD will reach out to you about your supplies and the drop off details after you register.
