LP’s 2022 Day of Service
August 24, 2022
On August 17, LP team members volunteered at the Greater Chicago Food Depository as part of our “LP Day of Service.” 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. During our Day of Service, we packed 4,545 pounds of potatoes, 18,144 pounds of dried goods, and 4,976 pounds of bread for a total of 23,054 meals.
Volunteer repack sessions at the GCFD warehouse are essential to their daily impact in the community. Typical activities of a repack session include repacking fresh produce and bulk food for distribution, sorting and labeling products, and assembling boxes of assorted food.
