Feeding the needy is no small feat especially if there are 36 million Americans including 12.6 million kids who are hungry. But the new Quaker Go Project is making a huge commitment to feed the hungry children all over the world by hitting communities and asking for volunteers all over to come join the effort.

What can we do here in Chicago? It’s not as hard as you think.

  • For starters, we here in Chicagonista are helping with the Go Project launch by hosting a blogger volunteer gathering on March 26th from 1-4pm at the Greater Chicago Food Depository. If you would like to help us celebrate by joining in, please fill in our contact form and we will email you more details.  3 hours of your day can help feed hundreds.  Please come and join us.
  • You can simply start by entering all your Quaker UPC codes. For every UPC code, Quaker will donate 10 servings. So as you feed yourself, then why not help feed others. Click here to enter your UPC codes.
  • You can also bring your own hunger relief idea to life. Each month Quaker will award 20 Go Grants of $500 so people like you can develop community projects to help combat hunger. You can fill up an application here.
