CHIditarod is Chicago’s Epic Shopping Cart Race. It’s a food drive, beauty pageant, talent show and fundraiser all in one. It’s possibly the world’s largest mobile food drive, benefiting the Greater Chicago Food Depository. More than 120,000 pounds of food have been donated to date.
Online registration is now open for the 14th annual CHIditarod. You can also support CHIditarod with a contribution to the virtual food drive.
Teams of 5 register to race their decorated shopping carts by midnight Central Time on February 15. Each team is required to collect at least 69 pounds of shelf-stable food for the Food Depository. Food donations will be weighed at check-in. The race departs from the corner of Ashland and Fulton Market at 12:30 pm. Learn more about CHIditarod at chiditarod.org.
