Alleviating Hunger in Chicago

 

CCO Food Pantry

Each week the CCO Food Pantry provides nutritious food items to over 150 pantry attendees. “Grammy”, pictured in blue, has been a long time pantry volunteer. She works weekly along with a small army of folks who give their time to offer food with a smile and a word of encouragement.

Would you like to volunteer to serve at CCO? Click here if you would like more information on volunteering your time and energy.

Are you interested in joining Team CCO at the Greater Chicago Food Depository Hunger Walk? The Hunger Walk is a 3.1 mile walk through Chicago’s beautiful downtown, lake front area. Each person walking for CCO will increase our food credit by 224 pounds with the Food Depot. The credit is used to purchase food for our shelter guests, food pantry patrons and dinner guests. Click here for more info about the Hunger Walk.

Thank you!

Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle

Congratulations Team CCO! We are grateful to all our wonderful team members who participated in the Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle! Together the 11 members that ran the Shuffle raised over $3,500 to help alleviate homelessness in Chicago!

Nearly half of the team are adolescents who volunteer at CCO wrapping and delivering birthday gifts and treats to children living in the shelter. We are proud of their example to others and compassionate dedication to homeless children!

It’s not too late to join Team CCO. Learn more here.
