Obama Supporters Virtual Food Drive for GCFD

Obama Supporters Against Hunger and Poverty would like to invite you to join in the fight against hunger in our community by supporting the Greater Chicago Food Depository through the Obama Supporters Virtual Food Drive. All donations raised through the Virtual Food Drive will be earmarked to help the Food Depository purchase nutritious, high-quality food for hungry individuals and families in Chicagoland.

Why a Virtual Food Drive? The answer is simple – to get more food to more people in need. Through the Virtual Food Drive, the Food Depository can purchase food in bulk quantities, at prices well below the market rate. All the items on our food drive have been identified by the Food Depository as ones that are in high demand. Won't you please join me in helping to provide food for the nearly 90,000 people who rely on the Food Depository each week?

We believe Obama supporters can be actively involved in their community and the world around them. Please join us in supporting this effort from now until May 30 by visiting

About the Greater Chicago Food Depository:
The Greater Chicago Food Depository, Chicago’s food bank, is a not-for-profit food distribution and training center providing food for hungry people while striving to end hunger in our community. The Food Depository distributes donated and purchased food through a network of 600 food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters to almost a half-million adults and children every year. Last year, the Food Depository distributed more than 40 million pounds of nonperishable food and fresh produce, dairy products and meat, the equivalent of more than 84,000 meals every day. Innovative training programs and initiatives developed by the Food Depository also work to provide men, women and children with the tools necessary to break their individual cycles of poverty.
