Disney and ABC7 Chicago have teamed up with Feeding America and local food banks to provide access to nutritious food in our community.
In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic inflation and soaring costs have hit families hard and having enough resources for nutritious food is challenge for hundreds of thousands in the Chicagoland area.
ABC7, a Disney company, is encouraging our community to support local food banks that provide millions of meals annually for our neighbors experiencing food insecurity. We have a goal to raise $50,000 before the end of the year!
All donations received will be processed by Northern Illinois Food Bank and directed to the donor’s local food bank by address.
