2022-2023 Annual Report

In the past two years, the perfect storm of soaring food prices and diminished federal assistance resulted in tens of thousands of our Chicago neighbors experiencing food insecurity. We served more people in fiscal year 2023 than we did at the height of the pandemic. Put simply, we could not have risen to the challenge without the outpouring of support from our donors, volunteers and community partners.

You can find details on our rebrand, our new headquarters, our food programs, transformational gifts and much more in our 2022-2023 annual report.


Fall Fundraiser: The Nourishing Hope Gala

Exclusive, high-end dinner event held in the fall, hosted by the Board of Directors. The event includes a live auction and silent auction to support Nourishing Hope’s operating expenses and a presentation honoring partners and volunteers of the year (past winners include Cubs Charities and Conagra Brands). Stay tuned for more details about our 2024 event!

Spring Fundraiser: The End Hunger Social

Cocktail reception with a silent auction held in the spring, hosted by the Young Leaders Board. 200-300 up-and-coming professionals in attendance.

“Food insecurity is at the foundation of other challenges — physical health, education, mental health wellness. By supporting Nourishing Hope, you are providing food for today and hope for tomorrow for thousands of Chicago families each year. Together, we can work together to alleviate short-term suffering and cultivate healthier communities. Get involved today in Nourishing Hope’s meaningful work. No one should go hungry.”
