CCO wants to give a big thanks to the outstanding students and teachers from Vaughn Occupational High School! Every Wednesday Vaughn students come to the CCO Food Pantry to help give out nutritious food. They always have a smile for everyone who comes through the door. You guys are the best! Thanks!
The CCO Food Pantry gives out over 150 bags of nutritious food each week. The vast majority of pantry attendees are senior citizens who rely on pantry groceries to make it from month to month.
Are you interested in volunteering at CCO? We rely on our valuable volunteers to prep meals, serve food, clean, distribute food at our pantry, and do many other important tasks. Click here if you would like to find out more about volunteering at CCO.
Special thanks to Helle Family who join us each year for the Greater Chicago Food Depository Hunger Walk 5k. The Helle Families walk creates a 1,070 food credit for CCO. The credit from our walkers ensures that our shelter guests eat warm, nutritious meals, and groceries are given to our food pantry patrons.

The walk begins on June 20th at 8am at Soldier Field. The course weaves through Chicago’s beautiful lakefront paths. Help fight hunger in Chicago by joining us for the Hunger Walk! Thanks!
