Griffith Foods has been a proud supporter of the Greater Chicago Food Depository for many decades. The Food Depository and its 800 community partners and programs work to end hunger for the 1 in 5 households that are experiencing food insecurity throughout Cook County, where our corporate headquarters is located.

We are proud to support the Food Depository with our expertise, time, and monetary donations. In fiscal year 2023, Griffith Foods contributed $40,000 as lead corporate Hunger Action Month sponsor in September, volunteered to repack thousands of meals for our neighbors, and to honor Dean Griffith, we continued our annual tradition of giving with 44,000 pounds of pancake mix.

Our Research and Development (R&D) team has also worked with the Food Depository to develop seasonings and healthy, low-prep meal recipes, coinciding with the organization’s Nourish Project to expand kitchen, cold storage, shipping, and distribution of nutritious and ready-to-eat meals, in addition to being a resource for community food pantries.
