April Food Day 2019

April Food Day is United Way of Metro Chicago’s annual food collection event and awards luncheon that addresses food insecurity in the south-southwest suburbs, a region that is home to the fastest growing population of people living at or below the poverty line.

Through donations of non-perishable food items, household goods and financial support, you can help more individuals and families in the south-southwest suburbs meet some of their most basic needs.

Looking for ways to support your neighbors in the south-southwest suburbs? Become a sponsor or make a financial gift today and help build stronger neighborhoods for a stronger Chicago region.
