Join friends and neighbors on Saturday, June 23 for the Greater Chicago Food Depository's (GCFD) 27th Annual Hunger Walk. The money we raise at the Walk will help fund the critical work of Care for Real, Edgewaters' food and clothing pantry, by providing credits to purchase food at the GCFD.
The 5K walk will start at the south end of Soldier Field, walk to 31st St. and return. Registration will begin at 7:00 a.m. and will step off at 8:30 a.m. Care for Real will walk as a group starting at 8:30 a.m. but you may start the walk any time before 9:30 a.m. You must turn in all forms by 9:30 a.m. or you will not be counted as a walker for that day.
Your participation and the donations you collect are vital to Care for Real. We provide staple foods, bread, baked goods, fresh fruit and vegetables to over 4,000 people per month. By providing emergency food, we are helping people to avoid homelessness and are ensuring a stable and healthy community.
