SAG-AFTRA Chicago Local members and staff will be volunteering at the Greater Chicago Food Depository on Friday, March 13. We never know exactly what we’ll be doing until we arrive, but volunteer opportunities include repacking bulk products to individual/family sizes, assembling boxes with assorted food, checking expiration dates, labeling or sorting products.

The Greater Chicago Food Depository is a nonprofit food distribution and training center that fights hunger throughout Cook County. The GCFD distributes donated and purchased food through a network of over 700 food pantries, soup kitchens, community programs and shelters serving more than 800,000 adults and children yearly.

Space is limited. Email Jolene Jones at for more information or to volunteer. Don’t forget to bring your family and friends! Participants must be at least 14 years old.
