When you head out on Saturday for the Allstate Wrigleyville Classic between Northwestern University and the University of Illinois, be sure to bring a can of food or other non-perishable item with you. Meijer stores is teaming up with the Chicago Cubs to collect canned goods. All collected food items will be donated to the Lakeview Pantry. You can drop items off between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. near the Billy Williams statue on Sheffield Avenue, near the corner of Addison, which will be known on Saturday as Wildcat Way.

The Lakeview Pantry provides on-site food distribution, a home delivery service for homebound people and distributes clothing to those in need. It is one of the few distribution centers that offers food to the homeless.

The Deep Dish urges everyone to contribute to this worthy cause, whether you'll be attending the game or will just be hanging out around Wrigley.
