This year we volunteered at the Greater Chicago Food Depository as part of our “LP Day of Service.” As a firm we spent the afternoon repacking donated goods that get distributed to various food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters in Cook County. The LP Day of Service is a part of our ongoing commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility and “doing good” in our community. Together we were able to repack 13,075 pounds of food that will go on to serve 10,895 meals for those in need in our community.
The Greater Chicago Food Depository's mission is to provide food for hungry people while striving to end hunger in our community. Since 1979, the Food Depository has made a daily impact on hunger across Cook County. Last year, the Food Depository distributed 70 million pounds of food, 35% of which was fresh produce. Every day we distribute the equivalent of 160,000 meals.
