Greater Chicago Food Depository on CBS

GCFD was recently featured in a short segment on the CBS evening news. It was about how the gas prices are hitting the agencies that help the hungry. GCFD has a serious need for the trucks that deliver the food throughout the area. They predict spending $40,000 more this year for gas that otherwise could be used to buy 30 tons of food. Six thousand more people are showing up every week at the Chicago area food pantries that GCFD serve.

Good bit, Kate Maehr.
