Feeding the Multitude
The Feeding the Multitude Ministry of Allen Metropolitan C.M.E. Church has been in partnership with the Greater Chicago Food Depository since October 2018. The ministry provides free hot nutritious meals to the community every Wednesday from 5:00pm-7:00pm.
The ministry is a community collaborative partnership inclusive of the neighborhood schools, group homes, recovery homes, homeless shelters and the Roseland Neighborhood Community Organization (RNCO). Due to Covid-19, the community’s need for wholesome meals skyrocketed; increasing by four times the rate provided in the ministry’s first year. Currently, all meals are prepared “To-Go” and many are delivered by church staff and community volunteers. Over thirty thousand (30,000) meals have been served since October of 2018. The ministry is listed as a resource on the City of Chicago Emergency Management number (311).
