It’s probably the world’s largest mobile food drive, benefiting the Greater Chicago Food Depository and the CHIditarod Foundation.

CHIditarod is more than just costumes and shopping carts. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to eradicating hunger. Our annual micro-grant program has provided $121,500 in funds to Chicago-area nonprofits solving hunger challenges via education, innovation, and direct action. CHIditarod is a 100% volunteer driven event, and we need 300+ volunteers on race day to make it a success.
