about us

Many of us are blessed with loving families, steady employment, and good health. Luxuries that are sometimes taken for granted. Food For Friends is an organization of people that are thankful for their many blessings and feel compelled to give back to a community that has given them so much. In doing so, they show their compassion for all of God’s children, especially those that are in need. Through the donation of time, money and other resources we are able to give to those in need the gifts of hope, faith and love.

Why Help?

Among big cities, the bureau counted more than 27,000 people in homeless shelters in New York, more than 6,400 in Los Angeles and nearly 3,800 in Chicago.




Food For Friends is a Chicago-based Christian Ministry that offers hands-on opportunities to provide food and reach the souls of those in need.




Our executive board consists of Daniel Herzog, Christina Chacon, John Opsahl, and Ken Rasbid



The roots of our mission statement were planted with the first Thanksgiving meal we helped serve in downtown Chicago in 1994.
