Thank You – April Food Day 2018!

Thank you to our event sponsors, volunteers, donors and attendees who made our 2018 April Food Day Food Collection and Awards Luncheon a huge success, and congratulations to our three honorees.

With your support and commitment, more than 128,000 pounds of food were collected this year, exceeding last year’s goal of 109,000 pounds. All donations were taken to the Tinley Park Convention Center the day of the event, where they were sorted and packaged by a group of volunteers, including students from the surrounding school districts.

April Food Day 2018

Join the Fight


Local food pantries estimate the need for food and household goods has more than doubled in the past five years. The need is especially high in the spring and summer months as donations decrease and supplies diminish.

Check out our volunteer portal for opportunities to join the fight against hunger year-round.
