We opened Eli’s Cheesecake World on World Food Day, October 16th, in 1996. Since that opening day and first Eli’s Cheesecake Festival. Eli’s has used the Festival and other events to promote food donations to the Greater Chicago Food Depository.
We appreciate the fine staff and volunteers for the Greater Chicago Food Depository who help make the Festival such a great sucess. We are very proud that the Festival raised almost double the amount of food—2,594 lbs. of non-perishable food and over $1,600 in cash.
Eli’s Cheesecake thanks the volunteers of the Greater Chicago Food Depository for their efforts to “Help Fight Hunger.”
Eli’s Big Slice helps the Greater Chicago Food Depository accept food and cash donations.
