CHICAGO (CBS) — Archbishop Blase Cupich rolled up his sleeves Wednesday to help hand out food for needy families in the Park Manor and Greater Grand Crossing neighborhoods.
At St, Columbanus Church, 331 E. 71st ST., Cupich shook a lot of hands and gave a blessing to the volunteers who help run the pantry all year round.
“People are fed every week in their food pantry. They have a dedicated service. They make sure that food is not wasted, and so that people come here and are fed each and every week.”
Many of those waiting are regular, like Barbara, who was there by 3 a.m., hoping to get a turkey.
“We won’t arknow until we go on the other side,” she said. “Whatever we’re going to get, I’ll be thankful for it, and take it home.”
