Support the Greater Chicago Food Depository and UIC's Pop-Up Pantry!

The UIC Pop-Up Pantry is getting ready to kick off another successful school year and needs your help. Like last year, the Pop-Up Pantry is asking for your support through participation in the 2018 Greater Chicago Food Depository Hunger Walk.  For each person that walks on behalf of the UIC Pop-Up Pantry, $12 is added to the Pantry's account at the GCFD.  This credit allows the Pantry to purchase food items for the Pantry to support and fuel student success. 100% of the money earned through participation in this walk will be used to purchase grocery items for the Pop-Up Pantry. At the 2017 Hunger Walk, the Pantry earned over $1,500 in funds and hopes to match the success this year.

The Hunger Walk is Saturday, September 8th at Jackson Park. The walk kicks off at 8:30am and concludes at 11:30am. The Pantry hopes to gain the support and participation of as many students, faculty, staff, and community members as possible.  Please feel free to ask friends, family, or anyone else who would be interested in participating to join you.
