Registration is free and required in advance for this event.
The Greater Chicago Food Depository regularly needs volunteers to help with repacking donated food and other products. The repack session is a great introduction to the Greater Chicago Food Depository, the work they do, and the need that they see in Cook County. A lot of the food they receive at their warehouse comes in bulk quantities and volunteers are scheduled to help break it down into more manageable sizes. In a repack session you might be sorting produce, looking over a shipment of bread, or repacking bulk dry goods (cereal, pasta, rice) into smaller quantities.
