About Us

Food For Friends, with our mission fully understood, continues a long standing tradition of giving back to our communities.

Many of us are blessed with loving families, steady employment, and good health. Luxuries that are sometimes taken for granted. Food For Friends is an organization of people that are thankful for their many blessings and feel compelled to give back to a community that has given them so much. In doing so, they show their compassion for all of God’s children, especially those that are less fortunate. Through the donation of time, money and other resources we are able to give to those in need the gifts of hope, faith and love.

Our Mission
Food For Friends is a Chicago-based Christian Ministry that offers hands-on opportunities to provide food and reach the souls of those in need.

Our Vision
Food For Friends and all those that volunteer with us look to a day when those that must choose between food, clothing or shelter no longer go hungry.

Food For Friends realizes that there are needs in the United State, Canada and all throughout the world. However, our goal is to channel our energy and resources to our local communities. Our hope is to reach those in need right here in the greater Chicago area.
