Please join us for a Volunteer Day at The Greater Food Depository on Friday, March 23, 2018 from 9:00 AM to 11:45 AM.  We have 20 open spots on a first-come, first-served basis.  Please use the below link to register.  You will need to create a User ID and Password if you have not previously registered.

 

The Greater Chicago Food Depository regularly needs volunteers to help with repacking donated food and other products. The repack session is a great introduction to the Greater Chicago Food Depository, the work they do  and the need that we have in Cook County. A lot of the food they receive at the warehouse comes in bulk quantities and volunteers are scheduled to help them break it down into more manageable sizes. In a repack session we might be sorting produce, looking over a shipment of bread, or repacking bulk dry goods (pasta, rice, beans) into smaller quantities. Together, we can properly and efficiently distribute quality food to participating food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters in Cook County, while networking with our CBTA friends and colleagues as well.

Volunteers will be working in an active warehouse, and everyone must be registered in order to volunteer in the warehouse. The amount of food we are able to repackage is dependent on the number of scheduled volunteers.  Thank you for your dedication to our mission of making sure no one goes hungry!
