It is hard to think of the community without St. James Food Pantry. I first volunteered at the food pantry when I was a college student at nearby IIT. It is great to see the St. James Food Pantry serving so many more in need, now some 20 years later. Noticing the long line at the mobile pantry breaks my heart, but I am glad the food pantry is there for those in need.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Meeting some of the clients of the pantry and hearing first hand how the pantry has helped feed people who have very limited means in surviving.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Expand the program to help more in need.
