Nilfisk Industrial Vacuums is proud to contribute to the Food Processing Suppliers Association (FPSA) and the Greater Chicago Food Depository’s initiative this holiday season to help “Defeat Hunger” in the greater Cook County, IL area. Nilfisk is a member of the FPSA, with a business development manager serving on the bakery council. Nilfisk’s contribution of vacuum cleaners will help support home front operations at the depository.

The donation will allow the Greater Chicago Food Depository to clean overhead pipes that otherwise need to be dusted by hand. In addition, two compact vacuums will aid in cleaning dust from stairwells and a Nilfisk wet/dry vacuum will provide easy clean-up throughout the entire facility.

In 2015 the FPSA and the Greater Chicago Food Depository contributed over 300,000 meals to the Defeat Hunger Campaign for the men, women and children of Cook County. Nilfisk’s vacuum contribution will help provide a clean facility for the volunteers, donors and visitors of the food depository.

Last year, the Greater Chicago Food Depository distributed over 68 million pounds of shelf-stable food, fresh produce, dairy products and meat. Networked with 650 pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, mobile programs, children’s programs, older adult programs and innovative responses that address the root causes of hunger, the depository makes a daily impact across Cook County.
