WHAT: This Chocolate Protein Beverage Mix is the culmination of a several-months’-long initiative of 12 local food and beverage companies to address hunger in Illinois.
Together, they are creating more than 230,000+ single-serve packets of Bigger Table Chocolate Protein Beverage Mix -- made with 100% donated ingredients and would retail at an estimated $3 a pouch. This is a free, first-of-its-kind, nutrient-rich, high-protein, drink mix made specifically for food-insecure residents of Chicago and Northern Illinois.

Food Bank (117,000 packets), Meals on Wheels (10,000 packets) Beyond Hunger (10,000 packets), and Common Pantry (10,000 packets). The remaining 3,000 packets will be distributed through Bigger Table and partners Imbibe and CREDMADE.
