At that time, we have had the courage to continue to feed over 150,000 people needing food over the years. We have with the support of the Greater Chicago Food Depository which has made it possible all these years to continue to make a difference with their constant support and love. The Greater Chicago Food Depository has been instrumental in supporting the entire food network of kitchens, pantries and shelters with access to food items and products at no cost. The COVID-19 pandemic has caused so many of us to alter the way we navigate and live our lives. With the innovative programs and support systems, the GCFD has in place which includes the onsite delivery of our placed order twice a month, has certainly helped us do a better job. We thank the GCFD for all of what they are doing and have done since early this year to address the issues and concerns of the more vulnerable communities fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.

The GCFD has started a program with some of its sponsors to deliver milk and Gourmet Gorilla combination boxes direct to our front door of our Grant A Wish Food Program every Saturday morning to our food program. The combination boxes usually have yogurt, butter, onions, potatoes, various produce items, fruit, and other items. Presently we get a total of 65 boxes delivered every Saturday morning and beginning August 1, 2020, we will be getting an additional delivery of 65 gallons of milk every Saturday along with the combination boxes. Also, it is in addition to what we already give away from bread, eggs, produce, a variety of meat, can goods and other items for the enrichment of the community. We all can and should try to make a difference, this is the only life we have, so let make it worth living. If you or someone you know is in need of food than feel free to come by to our food program.
