A celebrity chef was on hand Tuesday when the Greater Chicago Food Depository received a very large donation.

The Food Network's Paula Deen joined Smithfield Foods and the United Food and Commercial Workers to deliver hams to the depository. Officials say it's the equivalent of 150,000 servings of protein to people in need.

Dominick's also presented the Greater Chicago Food Depository with a check for $169,000.
