Holidays are a time to act locally

A reminder from the Greater Chicago Food Depository about the upcoming holiday season:

During the holiday season, the Food Depository is the beneficiary of more than 500 food drives, and we couldn't thank you enough for your support. But with demand at pantries steadily increasing—already up 30 percent compared to this time last year—and an economy in turmoil, never has your commitment to providing food for hungry people been more crucial than now.

Get involved by being a part of
One City, One Food Drive.

Stay on the lookout for these community food drives this holiday season:
» Dominick's & ABC 7's Holiday Food Drive (now through Jan. 3)
» Chicago Bulls food drive (plus reduced ticket prices)
» Boy Scouts food drive
» Turkey Trot

Check the event calendar often to see where the next community food drive is taking place.
