Beyond Hunger's mission is harnessing the power of communities to end hunger.

We are happy to speak with media outlets, groups, congregations, or schools about the work that we do.

What We Do

Smiling Girl Eating Lunch

We provide hunger-relief programming and services to 13 zip codes across Cook County, including portions of Chicago and its near-west Suburbs.  Our service offerings seek to provide the food, resources, knowledge, and skills people need to live healthy, active lives.

For over 40 years Beyond Hunger has created solutions to end hunger at every stage of life through comprehensive programs that now include: providing emergency food to families in need, summer meals for kids who lack them when school is out, connecting individuals to valuable benefits like SNAP (“food stamps”), conducting nutrition education and cooking classes to combat chronic illness, and delivering groceries to homebound older adults. Organization-wide we focus on health and nutrition – providing food that nourishes and sustains, food that is rich in nutrients, lean protein, and whole grains.
