Pitchfork Music Festival is proud to announce a new partnership with the Greater Chicago Food Depository to raise funds and awareness for ending hunger. The Food Depository is Chicago’s food bank and serves a network of more than 700 partner organizations and programs, including pantries, soup kitchens, lodging and mobile distributions.
Part of the proceeds from the Pitchfork Music Festival 2021 will be donated to the Food Depository. Kate Maehr, Executive Director and CEO of the Food Depository, said in a statement:
We are excited and grateful to be working with the Pitchfork Music Festival as we continue to serve an increased need in the ongoing hunger crisis. Many of our neighbors struggle to be able to afford food in the long term. The support of Pitchfork and its participants will make a significant contribution to alleviating hunger.
Contributions to the organization can also be made via the Pitchfork Music Festival’s Virtual Food Drive, which runs until September 13, 2021. In addition, the food depository will be on site at the festival to volunteer and organize small giveaways. Register online here to volunteer to help pack meals for the grocery store.
