Hello members!

As many of you know, September is Hunger Awareness month and our club participates in a number of hunger-related projects throughout the year and in particularly September.  One of the most “common” partners our club works with on this issue is The Common Pantry. 

On September 7th the Common Pantry will be participating in the 34th Annual Hunger Walk, organized by the Greater Chicago Food Depository, which supports more than 700 food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters and other programs across Chicago – including Common Pantry, the oldest continually operating food pantry in the city. 

Each year, the Hunger Walk provides an opportunity for Common Pantry to earn credits to purchase food for Chicagoans in need. The Common Pantry receives food credit for every walker who registers under our name. The credits from last year lasted through JUNE of this year!

This year’s walk will take place at Jackson Park. Common Pantry will have a bus transporting walkers to and from the Pantry.  The Common Pantry is located at 3744 N. Damen Ave.

Please note, this is not a club event however we still encourage any member, friends or family who are able to participate to join the walk and help out our friends at the Common Pantry. 

 

How to Register:

Clink on the below link, then select Join a team.  On the next screen search for Common Pantry A00003 to join their team.  Once you get to the select registrations, use the + sign to indicate the number of registrations and then hit register.  If you are unable to walk but would still like to help out you can hit the Donate button instead and select Common Pantry A00003 as the team you would like the donation to be credited to.
