Hunger Walk, Socks and Annual Report!

Hunger Walk Coming on June 20th  Mark your calendars now for June 20th, the date of the 29th Annual Hunger Walk, sponsored by the Greater Chicago Food Depository. The 3.1-mile (5k) walk at Soldier Field along the lakefront raises awareness and funds to help food pantries, shelters and soup kitchens throughout Chicago. Last year, the Irving Park Food Pantry raised nearly $18,000 from the Walk, our highest total yet, and we hope to continue to grow that number, as the number of neighbors we are serving also continues to grow.

White Socks Needed for Clients  The Pantry is again in need of men’s white crew socks. The socks help many of our clients, especially in the cold winter, and they receive one pair per request. If you can donate any, please bring them to the Pantry on Wednesday morning or leave them at the bottom of the stairs at the Grace Street entrance to the IPUMC during church hours, as with regular food donations

Hot Off the Press! Please read our Annual Report for 2014 – and thank you for your continued support!
