Chicago Shares
Mission & Vision

Chicago Shares is a not-for-profit corporation whose mission is to provide a way for individuals, agencies, religious communities, corporations and retail merchants to help the hungry poor through a food voucher system.

Through distributing $1 vouchers instead of cash, Chicagoans can be sure their donations feed the hungry.
