Radiothon: Donate Now To Help Feed The Needy

CHICAGO (WBBM) — This holiday season, we are hoping you can provide help for those who are struggling to put food on the table.

Tune into Newsradio 780 all day today for information on how to make a donation to the Chicago Anti-Hunger Federation.

The federation serves an average of 150,000 hungry people each month by supplying nearly 150 food pantries and shelters in Chicagoland.

Through their programs, many children, seniors and other family members are able to eat 3.6 million meals each year.

And, the focus is on healthy food, including fresh produce and lean meats. No junk food … ever.

You can either call 877-771-5544 or click here to make a donation.

And in this tough economy, the need has never been greater.

The Chicago Anti-Hunger Federation reported over 95,000 new clients so far this year.

Founded in 1990, the Chicago Anti-Hunger Federation provides more than meals for the needy.

It also provides culinary training, preparing students for a career in the food service industry. Oliver’s Kitchen trains its students in upscale food preparation, kitchen safety, nutrition and more.

The group also uses your donations to fund nutrition education programs for Chicago’s needy families.

Newsradio 780 and the Chicago Anti-Hunger Federation are proud to partner up for the 15th Annual “Good Neighbor Radiothon”. Please consider donating today!

Among those the Chicago Anti-Hunger Federation is trying to help are returning veterans from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
