TAP-Chicago Volunteer Session at The Greater Chicago Food Depository

 

The Greater Chicago Food Depository

The Greater Chicago Food Depository

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.

TAP-Chicago Volunteering at Breakthrough Fresh Market

breakthrough-v2

Join TAP-Chicago’s Community Service team as we strive to make a difference in the community. We will be volunteering with Breakthrough’s Fresh Market. Fresh Market is eliminating hunger and transforming neighborhoods in East Garfield Park by providing a sense of dignity, community and hope. Come be a part of this effort by serving at the indoor Fresh Market which provides fresh food, groceries, and supplies to low-income families!

Instead of receiving a bag of canned goods, guests are paired with a personal shopper and are guided through the shopping area to find fresh ingredients to create meals for their families. Residents also receive access to legal aid, food stamps, housing and employment information, financial management, GED certification and family workshops. You may be asked to fill one of these volunteer roles: Greeters, Computer Registration, Hospitality, Personal Shopping Assistant, Stockers, Set-up and Tear-down.

Registration: Limited space, please register on Eventbrite here.

Getting There: Close to Green line Kedzie stop. Street parking available in front of the building

Special Instructions: Recommended clothing is casual and comfortable, you may be on your feet for much or the whole time.
