Let the Serving Begin! Happy thanksgiving season!
Our Food For Friends leaders and volunteers are so excited as we already had a lot of activity this weekend with one dinner on the south side of Chicago serving over 200 under-resourced people in food challenged neighborhoods.
The leadership team and a small group of volunteers were busy this past week packing hundreds of BLUE BAGS and TEE SHIRTS for many companies, churches and organizations who will be hosting more than a dozen Food For Friends “Blue Bag Turkey dinner events” all across Chicago land today and the next 4-5 days.
This past week 1000 turkeys were delivered to Gonnella’s Schaumburg location. We are grateful for Gonnella Baking Company for storing these frozen turkeys for us. Gonnella has been an amazing partner… helping us to feed those with less in our own back yard Chicagoland. What a tremendous gift this is to all.
