Sponsorship Opportunities

Join the FIA community in supporting the Greater Chicago Food Depository on October 18 at the 8th Annual Great Chicago Steak Out!  Since 2008, FIA through its FIA Cares program has raised more than $3.32 million for GCFD to help feed those in need. Once again, the Chicago Private Dining Steakhouse Group, a prestigious collection of Chicago's top steakhouses, presents the finest dishes from their kitchens for you to sample and enjoy. The Steak Out takes place annually at the end of the 34th Annual Futures & Options Expo, taking place October 16-18, 2018.

By purchasing a ticket or a sponsorship, you can provide valuable assistance to Chicago’s hungry. GCFD, founded in 1979, makes a daily impact across Cook County with a network of 700 pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, mobile programs, children’s programs, older adult programs and innovative responses that address the root causes of hunger. Last year, the Food Depository distributed 70 million pounds of shelf-stable food, fresh produce, dairy products and meat, the equivalent of 160,000 meals every day.

Contact Toni Vitale Chan, Vice President, Business Development, FIA, at +1 312.636.2919 for more information.
