.Holiday Food Drive

Start Date: 12/03/18
End Date: 12/31/18

Welcome to the the Insult-A-Columnist Holiday Food Drive, where you can direct your dislike of Chicago Tribune columnist Rex Huppke toward a good cause. And if you’re one of those ridiculous people who like Rex, you can counter the haters by making a donation. All the money goes to the Greater Chicago Food Depository, so whether you like Rex or can’t stand him, you’ll be helping people!

Your contribution will help provide fresh fruits, vegetables, dairy and proteins to people in Cook County who face food insecurity, including 1 in 6 children. Every dollar raised through this virtual food drive will be used to buy nutritious food for our community.

Click the “Give Now” button below to get started. You can select a specific type of food you would like your money to go toward and drag that item to the “Drag Items Here” box, or you can click “SKIP AND DONATE” and make a cash donation of $5 or more. When you checkout, make sure you click on the “Direct donation to this team” button and choose either “RexStinks” or “RexRocks.” The results from each team will be tallied and Rex will write about the results in a column after the food drive ends on Dec 14. Let your voice be heard!
