Lakeview Pantry Joins the Greater Chicago Food Depository for the 30th Annual Hunger Walk

Lakeview Pantry Joins the Greater Chicago Food Depository for the 30th Annual Hunger Walk

On Saturday, June 20 approximately 100 volunteers, donors, clients and friends of Lakeview Pantry joined other food pantries, soup kitchens and hunger relief organizations at Soldier Field for the 30th annual Hunger Walk hosted by the Greater Chicago Food Depository.

Thanks to our sponsors, The Private Bank, Much Shelist, Madison Dearborn Partners and Remax/Edge, and to our walkers – who each earned $12 in food credit for Lakeview Pantry –  this year was Lakeview Pantry’s strongest ever. We raised more than $10,000 in donations and food credit that will go toward providing food for today, hope for tomorrow for our neighbors in Lakeview.

If you couldn’t make it to Hunger Walk but would still like to support our incredible team, you can make a donation online. Be sure to include “Hunger Walk” in the comments section.

And thanks to all of those who made the 3.1 mile journey along the lakefront with us. It was a wonderful day for Lakeview Pantry and a tremendous showing of support for our neighbors in need.
