Each year the Episcopal Diocese of Chicago Hunger Committee offers support to congregations and agencies that sponsor programs to address hunger in the diocese. In 2018, the Committee awarded grants ranging from $200 to $645 to 14 food pantries and meal programs.
The grants are funded through gifts to the Hunger Committee and other sources. Funds raised by Episcopalians participating in the Chicago CROP Hunger Walk are also distributed by the Committee; these funds are restricted to Chicago. Agencies outside the city may apply to their local CROP walks.
To apply for a grant, please complete and submit the online application by September 19, 2019.
