"For those of you who don't know, we're a group raising money for food security across Chicago. That means micro-grants for food pantries, urban farms, food kitchens, shelters and educational facilities. Through the pandemic this group has been going full steam helping keep the fragile non-profit network going so this year is extra important in our fundraising. We won't be having the shopping cart race this year, but have entered the video contest to raise awareness and create some comic relief! The video will be ready in March so in the meantime, we are so thrilled to be picking up food donations and accepting monetary donations via our link."
Sincerely - Sera Sousley of Cartastophe Chiditarod food-raising team and 6 year racer
