Join us for the Greater Chicago Food Depository's 31st Annual Hunger Walk on Saturday, June 25 at Chicago's beautiful and historic Jackson Park on the shores of Lake Michigan. Funds raised by our team at the Hunger Walk will support the Shepherd's HOPE Food Pantry, The Family Feeding Center, and the NEW After School Youth Program which will open in July!
Now in it's 7th year, Shepherd's HOPE provides well over 1,000,000 pounds of food to the people in the Englewood community through the Food Pantry and The Family Feeding Center. Equally important to its mission is the life change that has occurred because of the relationships built in this community as people volunteer and serve together. Our goal for 2016 is to extend our reach to the young people by providing hot, nutritious evening meals as well as tutoring and fun activities on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 4-6 pm. We are also seeking to acquire a larger facility where we can provide all our services in one location. TEAM PARTICIPATION has NEVER been MORE IMPORTANT! Please walk with us (every walker results in $12 for Shepherd's HOPE. But we also need your financial support. Just click the donate link on this page!
