Help nourish our neighbors. Everyone deserves access to fresh, nutritious food. Join United Way of Metro Chicago for April Food Day on April 27, 2023, as we come together to promote food security and recognize our 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. Through donations of non-perishable food items, household goods, and financial support, YOU can help make this possible for individuals and families in the south-southwest suburbs.
