IFT Cares...About Chicago!
We appreciate your enthusiasm! Thanks to you, we've reached our maximum number of volunteers to participate in this year's IFT Cares events.
IFT has a lasting bond with our headquarters home in Illinois. Each year, almost 500,000 people in north-eastern Illinois rely on emergency and supplemental food provided by the Greater Chicago Food Depository (GCFD) and its member network of almost 600 food pantries, soup kitchens, and shelters.
This year, we're working with the GCFD to staff mobile food pantries that distribute produce to people in need, as well as collecting food donations from Food Expo exhibitors at the close of the event. (Many thanks to our exhibitors, as these one-day collections are among the largest single-day food acquisitions for the GCFD.)
IFT Cares in 2014
We hope that you'll choose to participate in our 2014 IFT Cares event, when we visit the vibrant city of New Orleans, June 21-24, 2014. You'll play an important role in improving the lives of underserved New Orleans area residents, and leave a lasting impact on our host state and its people.
