On January 17th, CAA hosted it's annual peanut butter & jelly food drive in partnership with CORT and Move for Hunger during the New Year Kick-off Event at The Old Post Office. Peanut butter is highly requested by food banks because it’s a great source of protein, and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are a nutritious, delicious meal for people of all ages.

With food insecurity on the rise, member companies engaged in a friendly competition to provide the the largest donation.  Morguard Management blew everyone away with their generous donation (pictured) and received the title of "NYKO 2024 - Hunger Fighting Heroes!" 

We are thrilled to report that members donations a total of 433 lbs of food. Along with monetary donations, members donated  enough to provide 439 meals! 

Our friends from CORT Chicago picked up the food and delivered it to the Northern Illinois Food Bank. 

Thank you to our amazing members and partners for making a new Year's resolution to help fight hunger! And an extra big shout out to Morguard Management for their impressive donation.
