The Greater Chicago Food Depository, Chicago’s food bank, believes a healthy community starts with food. We are at the center of a network of more than 700 partner organizations and programs – food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, mobile distributions and other partners – working to bring food, dignity and hope to our neighbors across Chicago and Cook County. The Food Depository addresses the root causes of hunger with job training, advocacy and other innovative solutions. We are a proud member of Feeding America – the national network of food banks. By working to help those most in need go from hungry to hopeful, we truly become a Greater Chicago.
The Communications Manager supports the Greater Chicago Food Depository’s mission by raising awareness of hunger in our community and inspiring the public to take action. As a member of the Marketing and Volunteer Engagement Team, the Communications Manager leads the production of newsletters and other creative projects, plays an active role in media relations, develops key messages, and supports the communications needs of the organization. The ideal Communications Manager is creative, constantly in search of ways to tell the story of our work in fresh and compelling ways, organized, and a relationship builder with supervisory experience.
