Chicago Food Depository Summer Meals Program

NBC 5 is proud to sponsor the Chicago Food Depository Summer Meals Program.

The Summer Meals Program is designed to feed children in the community who are at risk of hunger.  In Cook County, nearly 255,000 children are at risk, especially during the summer months when children are out of school.

The Food Depository responds to nearly 300 summer meal sites throughout Cook County, including the Lunch Bus and Kids Cafe, where children can receive free, nutritious meals during the summer.
