Welcome to the Hillside Food Pantry Team page for the 29th Annual Greater Chicago Food Depository Hunger Walk.
The funds our team raises will be used to buy food from the Greater Chicago Food Depository for distribution to an average of 500 families every week at Hillside Food Pantry. Your participation and donations help make this possible!
The Hunger Walk is an annual 5K (3.1 miles) event to raise funds and awareness for the Food Depository's work in Cook County and network of 650 agencies (food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters). The Food Depository covers the overhead expenses for the event so all funds raised can be divided amongst the agencies to help supplement their budgets or, in some cases, serve as their entire annual budget. This is the largest one-day anti-hunger event in Chicago that brings together all of Cook County.
Feel free to make a donation to me or the Hillside Food Pantry team. Either way, we appreciate your support, and I thank you on behalf of all of our patrons and volunteers.
Blessings & joy,
Maiya Lueptow, Team Captain
