Hope Church providing healthy alternatives for families and residents
As the poor economy continues to take its jabs at working-class families throughout Chicago, one West Side church is working to lighten the blows.
Hope Community Church, located at 5900 W. Iowa, opens its doors every weekend to families in need via its food pantry. Supported by the Greater Chicago Food Depository and through donations, the pantry operates every Saturday morning. In addition to the 5-year-old pantry, the church also provides a mobile food truck on the second Thursday of the month.
