Volunteers Needed for the Lakeview Pantry
Since the COVID-19 outbreak hit the city, visitors to Lakeview Pantry, Chicago’s largest food pantry, have increased by over 80%. To help keep up with demand and offer a safe space for volunteers to help sort and pack food, the Pantry will be setting up a temporary satellite food distribution center on the main concourse at Wrigley Field.

They are in need of more volunteers to meet demand. To sign up to volunteer or learn more, visit Can’t volunteer? Consider making a donation to help those in need.
