United Way of Metro Chicago will host its annual April Food Day on Wednesday, April 13, 2022. The luncheon and food drive event will benefit local food pantries across Chicago’s south-southwest suburban region.
On April 13 at the Tinley Park Convention Center, non-perishable food donations will be sorted, packaged and distributed to 10 Southland food pantries. United Way of Metro Chicago’s South-Southwest Regional Board will also be hosting the April Food Day luncheon, honoring three community leaders.
Local food pantries report seeing an increase in the number of households looking for assistance due to the pandemic and rising food costs. April Food Day will help food pantries across the south-southwest suburban region meet the rising need in the spring and summer months when other donations typically decrease and supplies diminish.
