Accessing Food

The Greater Chicago Food Depository sponsors many locations around the city that offer markets and some locations that serve warm meals. To find the nearest location, please visit: www.chicagosfoodbank.org/find-food.

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, provides Illinoisans with funding they can use on essential goods like groceries. In coming weeks, assistance from the federal government will make it possible for the state to give SNAP recipients far more funds — in some cases, 90 percent more — with which to get food eligibility guidelines here. Here’s how to apply:

  1. Go online and fill out an application through the state’s Application form.
  2. After applying, you’ll need to be interviewed by a case worker. This can be done over the phone.
  3. For the interview, applicants need proof of their identity, proof of residence, proof of Social Security numbers and might need other documents.
