Gethsemane's Food Pantry Makes Headlines
Fox News Chicago visited the Gethsemane Food Pantry just in time for Thanksgiving!
On October 13, 2004, Gethsemane opened up a Food Pantry under the vision of the Pastor Dion A, McCarthy and the direction of the first Lady Debra A. McCarthy. This program provides a bag of groceries to residents of the Englewood community - also known as a food desert. Our Food Pantry is open every Wednesday from 11:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. and being part of the Greater Chicago Food Depository, we are able to service hundreds of families monthly. We also provide social service resources and medical screening to our clients. Since the opening of the Gethsemane Food Pantry we have served more than 35,000 people annually.
