Tonight on After Hours with Rick Kogan:
For every problem there’s a solution and every puzzle has its pieces that’s why the founders of the Greater Chicago Depository came together to solve the problem of hunger using volunteers nationwide as key pieces to a well-fed Chicago puzzle. Former Chicago Tribune reporter Greg Trotter and CEO/Executive Director of the Greater Chicago Food Depository Kate Maehr joins host Rick Kogan in the Allstate Skyline Studio as she discusses the history of the organization and how they plan to continue to fulfill their ongoing mission.
According to Kate, hunger does not always look homeless and the Greater Chicago Food Depository and their nationwide food bank network are open to those, no matter what the background, who are struggling and hungry.
