This morning from 5 until 10, WGN Morning News is inviting viewers to stop by to donate canned goods and other packaged foods.
It’s the fourth annual WGN Morning News Drive-Thru Food Drive with all donated food going to the Greater Chicago Food Depository.
WGN is an independent station in Chicago owned by Tribune.
The Food Depository, founded in 1979, makes a daily impact across Cook County with a network of 700 pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, mobile programs, children’s programs, older adult programs and innovative responses that address the root causes of hunger.
Last year, the Food Depository distributed more than 71 million pounds of shelf-stable food, fresh produce, dairy products and meat, the equivalent of 164,000 meals every day.
