My wife and I co-chair the annual Jazzin' to Feed event which helps feed close to 2,000 families per month. The food pantry serves the needs of the community regardless of race or religion. As a community we believe our calling is helping others that are in need. Unfortunately, the need continues to rise and we must seek help of others. If you would like to help us at the food pantry by volunteering your time at the pantry or even helping work an event please contact Peter Wawire at 312-842-1919
