The Chipotle located at 1128 Lake Street in Oak Park recently teamed up with Feed My Starving Children on March 23. Customers who mentioned the nonprofit to the cashier had 50 percent of their payment donated to the cause.
Feed My Starving Children raises money for Mobile Packs. These Mobile Packs consist of carefully organized meals that will be sent to children in danger of dying from starvation and malnutrition.
On March 23, Chipotle helped raise money for their “Cause an Effect and Make Lunch or Dinner a Selfless Act” fundraiser. This fundraiser helped pay for the 100,000 meals to be packed by 500 volunteers from the OPRF community on April 16 at Concordia University.
One of the event organizers, Carole Morey, expressed her thankfulness for Chipotle’s efforts. “We are so grateful to Chipotle for helping us raise funds to pay for the food we will be packing,” she said. “We are hoping the Oak Park River Forest community will support the Mobile Pack by dining in or taking out from Chipotle on March 23.”
