Help Feed Your Hungry Neighbors!
“For I was hungry, and you gave me food . . . What so ever you did for the least of my brothers and sisters, You did it for me.” Matthew 25:35-41
We can’t feed the hungry in our community without you. Catholic Charities provides more than 240,000 meals each year to the hungry. Our Mobile Food Pantry will deliver food to 30,000 people this year. Shepherd’s Table, our soup kitchen, feeds more than 27,000 nutritious meals annually. Head Start feeds 156,000 meals to underserved children. Our shelters are struggling to keep up with the demand. The need for food seems to be never ending.
We have a special opportunity to raise funds to feed the hungry. Alan Shawn Feinstein, a philanthropist dedicated to eliminating hunger in our country, has issued Catholic Charities, Diocese of Joliet a challenge. The more money raised through this challenge, the more money Mr. Feinstein will donate – and he has one million dollars to give away!
