Food depository seeks volunteers for help

The Greater Chicago Food Depository held a special volunteer session Sunday afternoon for families to help those who are less fortunate.

ABC7 Chicago's Ravi Baichwal and his family helped on the assembly line, packing up 22-lb.pound boxes that will each feed a family of four for a week.

Chicago area food pantries and soup kitchens have seen a 33-percent increase in the number of people relying on them.
