Saint James Food Pantry
November 1, 2010

I worked at St. James Catholic Church for a while and the church offices are next to the pantry. I saw the amazing network of volunteers, professionals and guests in the pantry each day as I came in to work. It is amazing how efficiently it runs, how there are always many volunteers working to make the guests' visits timely and satisfying, and the coordinator of it all, Cathy Moore, always has a smile on her face and a pleasant word for everyone who enters the door. St. James Food Pantry doesn't just feed bodies, it feeds souls!

The Great!

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

... the relationships built among visitors and volunteers alike.

Ways to make it better...

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

invite more people to share funding? This organization is doing AMAZING work with minimal resources. The hearts are there. The organization is there. More is always needed, but I know the director, Peter Wawire, is working it every way he can. It's just a great place doing great work.

MY ROLE:
Volunteer & I've volunteered occasionally and been present often.
