Greater Chicago Food Depository
Grand Vending is a local business and we invest in our surrounding community.
A portion of every gumball we sell helps support the Greater Chicago Food Depository — a nonprofit food distribution and training center that provides food for hungry people while striving to end hunger in our community.
The Food Depository, founded in 1979, makes a daily impact across Cook County with a network of 650 pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, mobile programs, children’s programs, older adult programs and innovative responses that address the root causes of hunger.
Last year, the Food Depository distributed 67 million pounds of shelf-stable food, fresh produce, dairy products and meat, the equivalent of 154,000 meals every day.
