Saint James Food Pantry
November 2, 2010

I volunteer at Saint James Food Pantry every chance I get - the number of people that they help with the speed and the efficiency that we do makes me feel like less of a bystander and more of a participant in helping out as much as I can. There are so many older immigrants who come who are willing to stand up to 3 hours out in the cold and rain for $25 of groceries that it really makes me grateful for what I do have.

The Great!

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

Chicago, down in Bronzeville. In the way that they selfless give of themselves, expecting nothing thereof. On the second Saturday of every month.

Ways to make it better...

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

Expand their operations so that they can serve more people with greater speed so they don't have to wait outside. As it stands now, the space is so small that we can only serve so many people so quickly while the rest wait outside.

MY ROLE:
Volunteer & Unpacked and repackaged food, handed groceries to those in need.
