HBK is always committed to supporting our community. This year, we were beyond excited for ComEd's Construct Program to add in a Volunteering Day where students, agencies and employers could come together at the Greater Chicago Food Depository to give back in a meaningful way. All together, we packed 28,080 pounds worth of food, providing 30,523 meals, and getting one step closer to ending hunger for our neighbors throughout Chicago and beyond.

 

The Greater Chicago Food Depository, Chicago’s food bank, believes a healthy community starts with food. It is at the center of a network of more than 800 partner organizations and programs – food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, mobile distributions and other partners – working to bring food, dignity and hope to our neighbors across Chicago and Cook County. The Food Depository addresses the root causes of hunger with job training, advocacy and other innovative solutions.  HBK is grateful for the opportunity to volunteer and help those most in need go from hungry to hopeful!
