To help celebrate its 75th Anniversary year, The National Association of Concessionaires (NAC) is bringing increased attention to ending hunger through the work of the Greater Chicago Food Depository in 2019. There will be various opportunities for the members of NAC to support this worthy cause in commemoration of our home city of Chicago during our milestone anniversary.
It’s fast and easy to contribute, simply follow this link to either do a virtual shop or make a direct cash donation to the NAC 75 Food Drive Campaign:
According to the Food Depository, nearly 800,000 people are unsure of their next meal and every $1 donated can help provide 3 meals. The NAC goal will be to provide 30,000 ($10,000) meals during the campaign. One hundred percent of your contribution will go toward purchasing food for the hungry. Together, we can help end hunger starting with our own back yard.
There are also plans being made to feature the Food Depository through engagement at the 2019 NAC Concession and Hospitality Expo, coming home to Chicago on July 30- August 2 at the Fairmont Chicago, Millennium Park Hotel.
