Join TAP-Chicago’s Community Service team for a rewarding afternoon by volunteering with The Greater Chicago Food Depository! GCFD is a non-profit organization that helps to end hunger in Chicago and surrounding areas by distributing food to participating food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters. You will be helping this cause by repacking donated food and other products (which come in bulk quantities) into smaller sizes. Once this is done, they are ready to be loaded to their trucks for distribution.
Registration Required: The Greater Chicago Food Depository (All volunteers must register to participate) (New/First time volunteers account creation required)
Parking: The parking lot is open to volunteers during Saturday sessions. There are additional parking on either Karlov or Keeler – the streets east and west of their building. They are meter-free and Karlov (the street east of them) usually has closer parking spaces.
Dress code: Long pants, covered shoulders, and enclosed shoes are required to work in the warehouse.

WHO IS ARTHUR CHU?
A FILM BY: YU GU, SCOTT DRUCKER
STARRING: ARTHUR CHU, ALEX TREBEK, ROCQUE TREM, ELIZA BLAIR
Run Time: 90 minutes (Check out the trailer below)!
Arthur Chu hacked Jeopardy! and won big. Now he’s using his newfound celebrity to battle dark forces on the internet as a blogger and cultural pundit. Raw, unfiltered and poignant, we follow Arthur as he realizes he can only create positive change in the world if he first heals his own wounds by reconciling with his estranged family.
Featuring a Q&A with Scott J. Drucker and Yu Gu, moderated by Chicago-based journalist, Peter C. Baker, a freelance journalist and contributing editor at Pacific Standard magazine. In 2015, he profiled Arthur Chu, and in the years since has written extensively about masculinity and the Internet for New York Times Magazine and Elle. He is a 2017-2018 Carter Center Fellow in Mental Health Journalism.
