#hashtaglunchbag  Chicago had a huge turnout last month as the holiday spirit was definitely around us. Thanks to all of our amazing volunteers, the December event was a huge success.

We got to watch so many beautiful faces light up as they opened their gifts. Thanks to you Chicago, over 1,000 were fed and 400+ kids received gifts. 

And a special shout out #Hashtaglunchbag  founders (the originators)! 2 years, 60 cities, 5 continents and hundreds of thousands of fed people later, we continue to work to help others ❤️ #Hashtaglunchbag - and it all started with you!
