Perficient Chicago Office Sponsors Trivia Night to Benefit Food Pantry

In Cook County, Ill., an estimated 800,000 Chicago-area residents are “food insecure” – uncertain as to when or from where their next meal will come. Perficient colleagues there are sensitive to the issue and so recently sponsored a trivia night in support of a nearby food pantry.

Last spring, several Chicago colleagues raced up the stairs of the city’s Presidential Towers to raise money and awareness for the American Lung Association. This time, 23 players on four trivia teams played six rounds to raise money and food donations for Lakeview Pantry, one of the oldest food pantries in Chicago.
