September is Hunger Action month. More than a million people receive food assistance every year from Northern Illinois Food Bank and The Greater Chicago Food Depository.
Julie Yurko of Northern Illinois Food Bank and Nicole Robinson of The Greater Chicago Food Depository stopped by ABC7 Chicago to talk to Tracy Butler about ways Chicagoans can join the fight against hunger.
To help solve hunger in your community, you can wear orange on September 13 for Hunger Action Day, start a food drive, or make a donation – every $1 donated helps provide $8 worth of groceries to hungry neighbors in Northern Illinois! Pack-A-Thons will also be held throughout the month in Park City, Joliet, and Rockford – learn more here.
