Volunteer with the Greater Chicago Food Depository and CAPCA!

05 Jun 2021
8:30am - 11:15am CDT

CAPCA members are invited to volunteer at Greater Chicago Food Depository (GCFD) on Saturday June 5 from 8:30am to 11:15am.

The Greater Chicago Food Depository regularly needs volunteers to help 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 see in Cook County.

A lot of the food they receive at our warehouse comes in bulk quantities, and volunteers are scheduled to help us break it down into more manageable sizes. In a Repack session you may sort produce, inspect and box shipments of bread, or repack 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.

Group members will still be asked to practice social distancing during the session. All volunteers are required to wear cloth face coverings or masks when they come to the Food Depository.

You must register with the GCFD to attend this event. Spots are limited to 15 CAPCA members. Group Link to sign up:
