This holiday season, the McDonald’s Owner Operators of Chicago and Northwest Indiana and the Northern Illinois Food Bank have teamed up to provide holiday meals to those in need to present the 21st Annual Food for the Body and Spirit turkey and trimmings giveaway, November 11 – 20.
Select McDonald’s locations across Chicago’s south and west sides and Northwest Indiana will provide over 5,500 free turkeys and trimmings, making this year the largest effort yet.
Food for the Body and Spirit was started by the Black McDonald’s Operators Association to help communities most effected by unemployment and poverty.
WGN Radio’s own Jon Hansen was on-site at the McDonald’s in Joliet (1421 Riverboat Center) to help distribute the meal boxes at that giveaway. Check out the photos!
