Recapping our volunteering event at the Greater Chicago Food Depository. On Wednesday, March 20, 2019, a group of 25 Barcodes Team volunteered at the Greater Chicago Food Depository. We helped play an essential role in distributing food to a network of pantries and programs in Cook County. Our group was tasked with sorting and packaging bread. At the end of our session, we packed 657 cases of bread, which equated to 9,504 pounds. Our volunteer session helped distribute the equivalent of 14,418 meals! We want to thank everyone who volunteered! Check out the pictures of our team hard at work helping our hunger in our community.

Barcodes Inc Lends A Hand At The Greater Chicago Food Depository

Posted March 18, 2016

GCFD 1The Greater Chicago Food Depository is a nonprofit food distribution and training center that provides food for hungry people while striving to end hunger in our local communities. The depository makes a daily impact across Cook County with a network of 650 pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, mobile programs, children’s programs, older adult programs and innovative responses that address the root causes of hunger.

Barcodes Inc recently came out to the GCFD warehouse to lend a helping hand with their food repacking. Much of the donations that come into the depository are in large palette-sized containers that need to be repacked into smaller boxes to be easily distributed to food pantries, soup kitchens, and shelters throughout Cook County.

During the few hours spent there, the Barcodes Inc group was able to repack 11,650 lbs of cabbage for easy delivery to our communities.

You can find more information on how to volunteer to help stamp our hunger in the Chicagoland area at the GCFD website.
