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.

Our services range from helping people connect to benefits like SNAP (“food stamps”) and Medicare Savings, to nutrition education and cooking classes lead by registered dietitians, and summer meals for kids who lack them when school is out.  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.
