The Greater Chicago Food Depository’s Producemobile, in partnership with Interfaith Action and the City of Evanston, will take place every second Tuesday of the month. For the month of March and months going forward we will distribute food outdoors at James Park , 300 Dodge. We continue to have both a drive-up and walk-up distribution. We are making the change to possibly provide an opportunity for social distancing indoor packing of produce if the weather is extremely cold or wet.
Approximately 35 volunteers are needed at each event to distribute produce to about 270 guests, volunteers to package produce, box haulers and volunteers to handle the foot and vechicular trafic within the Levy Center and James Park area.
