Help distribute food to clients and neighbors in need in the West Pullman neighborhood in the South Side of Chicago.
Volunteers will help setup food on shelves and tables and assist clients in picking out the food they like to eat. This is a client choice food pantry, they only take what they want so no food is wasted.
This is a weekly recurring event every Saturday morning, from 10 am to 3 pm. Shift time is flexible. If you cannot stay the whole 5 hour shift, any time you can give will be helpful and much appreciated. Please be prepared to help out in any way to help the event run smoothly, like cleaning, sweeping, breaking down boxes for recycling, etc. Your flexibility is much appreciated. No open toe shoes allowed. Please wear non slip shoes, like sneakers.
There is free street parking around the church.
We also have another opportunity to help this food pantry on Friday mornings to help unload food from the delivery truck. See separate post on the Chicago Fun Volunteer calendar.
