Food Box Volunteer Application
Complete this application if you are interested in volunteering to help with our food box campaign!

Black Lives Matter Chicago has been rounding up resources to assist in making food accessible to our communities. Chicago, known for its segregation, has at least 8 food deserts throughout the City, mainly affecting communities on the West and South Sides. Based on Census data, South Side neighborhoods have the least options for fresh foods and supermarket alternatives.

The City of Chicago defines food deserts as census blocks located more than a mile from a retail food establishment licensee with a business location larger than 10,000 square feet which does not include gas stations and fast food restaurants.

We need volunteers who will help restock, pick up donations, sort donations, check on condition of food boxes, and help in the creation of more foodboxes. If you are interested in helping with any of these things, please complete this form.
