Providing food

and volunteer services to the community

since 1982:



Operation Blessing of Southwest Chicagoland always needs volunteers like you to help us help others in our community. If you are looking for a rewarding and fulfilling experience that can also qualify as community service, get in touch with us today. We're always looking for people to help us unload trucks, pack boxes, sort food, interview clients, or participate in special events.


You can also make arrangements to go individually or as a group to help out at the Chicago Food Depository. When you volunteer there, the depository will deposit money into the Operation Blessing of Southwest Chicagoland food bank account. All you need to do is give them our pantry number,
