We had such a great time at the Greater Chicago Food Depository. Within the 2.5 hours we were there, we repacked 20,217 pounds of food, which provides 16,847 meals. Knowing that our work is going to directly impact people in Chicago is such a great feeling. I am excited to join ChiTribe at the Lakeview Food Pantry to see the next steps of our food repacking.Samantha Kaplan, ChiTribe Volunteer Coordinator
