Register Now for a CALL Volunteer Day: GCFD Food Repack Session, 1/21/23 @ 1 pm

Join us on Saturday, Jan. 21, 2023, at the Greater Chicago Food Depository at 1 pm – 3:45 pm.  Together we’ll be repackaging wholesale quantities of food into sizes that are ready for distribution in the community.

Registration can be completed online at:

This volunteer day is a continuation of CALL’s support of the GCFD this winter and holiday season. In connection with our November business meeting, our members made monetary donations and brought in non-perishable food items. The Food Depository is Chicago’s food bank, partnering with over 700 local agencies and programs, including pantries, soup kitchens and shelters for children, older adults and veterans. Every day they distribute over 267,000 meals, relying heavily on donors and volunteers to make it happen.

The Community Service Committee encourages all CALL members to come out for a fun afternoon volunteering for an organization that makes a huge difference in our communities each and every day. The Repack will take place at 4100 W Ann Lurie Pl, Chicago, IL 60632.

We hope to see you there on Jan. 21 (children age 11+ and friends are welcome). Any questions about this event can be directed to Lisa Winkler, Chair of the Community Service Committee.
