The Greater Chicago Food Depository leadership visits Breakthrough
The Missions and Programs Committee of the Greater Chicago Food Depository toured our new facility and held a meeting at our site today. I am so impressed with the leadership of the GCFD. You can sense from everyone involved that they are passionate about what they do and have established a culture of personal care and excellence. I appreciate that they are moving more into the area of advocacy to address the root causes of hunger. They want to work more closely with grassroots organizations like ours. We are blessed!
