GCFD Hunger Walk

gcfdlogoThe Greater Chicago Food Depository’s 31st Annual Hunger Walk is Saturday, June 25 at the beautiful and historic Jackson Park in Chicago. Together We Cope earns food purchase credits at the depository based on the number of TWC volunteers who participate in the walk. Anyone is eligible to walk on the TWC team and our agency provides transportation to and from Jackson Park.
     All walkers must register online, and on event day must produce the Eventbrite ticket issued to them. Register at chicagosfoodbank.org/hungerwalk.
     This year there is a $25 registration fee, but it will be waived for our walkers if they plug in our agency code when they register. The TWC agency code is A00233. (capital A, zero, zero, 233)
Registration is at Jackson Park at 7am, event step-off is at 8:30 am and the walk ends
