Join United Way of Metro Chicago for the April Food Day - Awards Luncheon on April 27, 2023, as we come together to recognize and celebrate the commitment of three community leaders advancing equity in the south-southwest suburbs, a region facing high levels of poverty and systemic education, health, and wealth inequities.

Meeting the basic needs of our neighbors, like food security, is a key part of United Way’s approach to building a stronger, more equitable Chicago region. April Food Day is United Way’s annual food collection event and awards luncheon that addresses this need. Support the April Food Day Awards Luncheon by purchasing a ticket to attend, making a financial gift, becoming an event sponsor, or starting a fundraiser and inviting your network to support April Food Day 2023.
