The Night Ministry has been serving meals on the streets of Chicago to homeless youth and other at risk populations for many years. Northminster joins in this ministry 6 times a year.
One team prepares sandwiches and treat bags and acquires drinks and chips. That team typically meets mid-day on the serving day. That night, a delivery team picks up the food at Northminster and makes the drive to the Lake View neighborhood in Chicago. From the loading dock of a local outlet store, the simple meals are served with warm smiles and words of welcome at the location where Night Ministry’s Youth Team is present providing a number of social services to many of the guests.
Out first serving opportunity for 2020 will be on Thursday, February 27th. Amy Mendelson will be leading the food prep crew this time. Amy has faithfully led that time for quite some time now. Beginning with our April serving opportunity, Gabriel Brooks will be leading the prep team for several servings. Contact Amy if you are interested in helping out with the February Prep Team.
