LBP volunteers at Greater Chicago Food Depository

Chicago, IL, August 19, 2017 -

LBP Manufacturing LLC (LBP) recently volunteered at the Greater Chicago Food Depository and served on the bulk repack team for pasta. The team was delegated roles for sorting, weighing, packing and palletizing. In just under 3 hours, a total of 6,696 pounds / 7 pallets of pasta was all packed and ready to be shipped to families in need.

LBP is dedicated serving communities and recently formed new volunteer and wellness groups. “I joined the volunteer committee because I’m grateful for the opportunities bestowed upon me and I want to do whatever I can to help the less fortunate,” said committee member Rythus Dye.
