Please join us for a Volunteer Day at The Greater Food Depository on Tuesday, April 2, 2019 from 1:00 PM to 3:45 PM.  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. Much of the food received at the warehouse comes in bulk quantities and volunteers are scheduled to help 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 assist the GFD to properly and efficiently distribute quality food to participating food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters in Cook County, all while networking with our CBTA colleagues.
