Wednesday morning Cong. Mike Quigley (D-5), the Lakeview Pantry and Jewel-Osco kicked off a September food drive at the 2940 N. Ashland Ave. Jewel-Osco store.
According to a Jewel press release:
“The drive will encourage consumers to donate at any JEWEL-OSCO store, giving money at store registers and making food donations in specially marked bins in stores. All contributions will go directly to the Lakeview Pantry, Greater Chicago Food Depository, Northern Illinois Food Bank and several other area food banks and food pantries helping those impacted by hunger.”
The “Give a Little, Feed a Lot” food drive will be held at all JEWEL-OSCO stores through the month of September which is “Hunger Action Month.” Last year’s drive raised more than $2 million in donations.
