Please join us on Saturday, October 10th from 9-11:30AM at the Northern Illinois Food Bank for our first serve of the year. A core value we have at St. Francis is to live out the gospel and serve those that are the "least of these" as Jesus calls us to do. The NIFB serves over 70,000 people each week and over 590,000 people per year! In Northern Illinois, 1 out of 5 children face hunger and need assistance. NIFB has a major need to fill volunteer slots and we are committing to provide 50 volunteers. Hope to see you there!
