The Greater Chicago Food Depository (GCFD) issued the results of a study on hunger in Chicago. Four areas of the city were found to have especially high rates of hunger, and the GCFD has instituted a new mobile food pantry program to target those areas most in need.
The Mission of Our Lady of the Angels serves one such area and hosts the mobile food pantry. Volunteers are needed from 8:45 until 11AM (and can arrive late if necessary) to help dispense food from the mobile food pantry and greet members of the community. Our Lady of the Angels, run by ND alum Father Bob Lombardo, ’79, is located on Chicago’s West Side at 3808 West Iowa, near Pulaski and Chicago. Please visit the website (http://www.missionola.com/).
