Referral: Top Box Foods Delivery Support

Description

On the second Friday and Saturday of every month, Top Box makes deliveries to the South and West side of Chicago as well as Lake County. These are entirely volunteer lead deliveries and typically last about 5 hours. If you’re interested, Top Box will provide the routes and times.
 

Impact

Top Box Foods is a fairly small organization with only eight full time staff members. Top Box truly relies on volunteers for the majority of their operations. Volunteers can make a huge difference in any capacity they feel comfortable in, whether it’s in their office, in their warehouse, or on deliveries. By growing their volunteer pool, Top Box is able to continue to fight food insecurity in our city and help affordable food be available to all.
