As Chicago Bears players, coaches and fans gear up for another season of touchdowns, tackles and football stats – the Greater Chicago Food Depository has a stat we want all Chicagoans to keep in mind.
The number of food insecure people in Cook County could fill more than 13 Soldier Fields. More than 807,000 individuals – 1 in 6 – in our community do not know when or where their next meal is coming from.
You can help us end hunger our community. This year the Food Depository has teamed up with FOX Chicago and the Northern Illinois Food Bank to collect nonperishable food items and monetary donations at the Chicago Bears Training Camp at Olivet Nazarene University in Bourbonnais, Il. Click here for the schedule.
If you are planning to see the Chicago Bears at Training Camp this summer, remember to “Do it for Chicago” and bring a donation. Your generosity will help feed hungry people in our community.
