On Saturday, June 21, thousands of men, women and children will gather on Chicago’s lakefront to raise funds and awareness for the fight to end hunger in Cook County. The Hunger Walk is a fun opportunity for all types of businesses, organizations and individuals to help ensure their neighbors get the food they need.

The 5K, 3.1 mile Hunger Walk benefits pantries, soup kitchens and shelters in Cook County that are members of the Greater Chicago Food Depository’s network. H.O.M.E. is a member and your participation or support is very important.

Your participation helps H.O.M.E. earn credits which we then use to buy food from the Food Depository. The food is used by our shared living residents at Pat Crowley and Nathalie Salmon House. In the last year H.O.M.E. has been able to reduce the amount of food we have to purchase from regular sources, this has been a huge help.

You can support H.O.M.E. by registering as a walker and walk with us on June 21. H.O.M.E. receives $12 for every walker who joins our team. Participants of every age are welcome! You can also donate to us directly and encourage your friends and family to do the same. There are three ways to help make a difference:

1. Join our team, fundraise, and walk with us

2. Just register and walk on the day of the event

3. Donate to a team member or the entire team
