The #ChiTechFoodDrive brings together Chicago's technology community each year to give back to those less fortunate. The #ChiTechFoodDrive supports the Greater Chicago Food Depository and is sponsored by Silicon Valley Bank.
Launched in 2014, the #ChiTechFoodDrive collected more than 3,300 lbs of food and $2,300 in cash donations last year. This provided more than 9,000 meals to families around the Chicagoland area.
In its second year, the #ChiTechFoodDrive took off and collected more than $14,500 & 3,500 pounds of food; providing more than 46,000 meals to the Greater Chicago Food Depository.
This year the #ChiTechFoodDrive collected $22,378.68 and 2,696 lbs of donations for the GCFD, which will help provide more than 69,000 meals to families around Chicago this holiday season.
