Join your friends for a short walk through the Old Irving Park neighborhood on Saturday, May 18th as the Irving Park Community Food Pantry holds its second annual Neighborhood Walk! The walk will kick off at 9am (but start gathering at 8:30am) and it will cover 1.7 miles around the Pantry’s base at 3801 N. Keeler Ave.
The goal is to raise awareness about food insecurity in our neighborhood, which includes the 60641 and western half of 60618 ZIP codes.
The Pantry is also asking walkers to bring donations, especially men’s white crew socks, toiletries (such as shampoo, deodorant, toothpaste, and razors especially) or shelf-stable food such as peanut butter, mac & cheese, tuna, energy bars, etc.
The Pantry encourages school and church groups to walk together. Students can earn 2 hours of service time. For more information, contact John Psiharis at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit their website at irvingparkfoodpantry.org/walk.
