Hunger Walk 2012
This Saturday June 23, 2012, is the Greater Chicago Food Depository’s annual Hunger Walk. The walk will take place at Soldier Field. Registration is 7 a.m. and step-off is 8:30 a.m. All of the proceeds go directly to help support the Greater Chicago Food Depository. The Hunger Walk is also a way for local food pantries in Chicago to raise funds. Walkers can support specific food pantries in their community or donate funds directly to Greater Chicago Food Depository. If you want to donate to a specific food pantry, you need to include the pantry’s “agency number” on your registration form. Pantries receive $12 in Depository credit for each walker they sign up.
In the South Loop, the South Loop Community Church Food Pantry will be walking. SLCC Food Pantry is open every Saturday 9 a.m. – 11 a.m. The pantry provides clients with nonperishable food items every week as well as fresh vegetables and meat, when available. If you would like to help this local food pantry, please include their agency number (A01435) on your registration form. To download a registration form, click here.
