Garfield Ridge Civic Feeds the Hungry

Members of the Garfield Ridge Civic League and members of the Emmaus Outreach Food Pantry at the Risen Assembly of God Church, 6069 South Archer, pause for a photo on Sunday afternoon.

GRCL members donated some eight boxes of non-perishable food items to the pantry, which has operated since 2001 and serves poor people in the Garfield Ridge area, as well as neighborhoods as far east as Brighton Park, Gage Park and Chicago Lawn; as far north as the LeClaire/Hearst area, and as far west as Summit.

The pantry is open every Tuesday afternoon.
