Leadership and Career Development:
A life of Apostolate: Mission Interns take on the role of running food panty operations in various capacities through Team Shop, Team Feast, Team Grow, Team Stride, and Team Form. All working together towards the betterment of the neighborhoods in which we serve. You will gain leadership experience in non-profit community work.
A Place of Belonging:
A Life in Intentional Community: Missionaries live in the neighborhood in which we serve with fellow missionaries. Together we grow through the sharing of community, life of prayer, service, and living simply.
In 2013, the Riverwest Food Pantry became a 501 (c)(3) non-profit to relieve hunger, but also to be a primary offensive against intractable poverty. We expanded our mission to “come together around food to relieve hunger, improve lives and grow community well-being”. Together, volunteers and shoppers alike, we can become a community of generosity – a community well-nourished, well-informed and strengthened to prevail.
HOW CAN FOOD BE A MEANS TO REDUCE POVERTY?
The vulnerable habitually gather as a community to eat, shop, and share their struggles at food pantries and meal sites. Food service agencies present an opportunity to connect the impoverished to additional social services. Regretfully, meal sites and pantries often lack staff or volunteers with sufficient training to ask the right questions, make good referrals or walk with people as they navigate complex community services. Pantries can reduce the number of barriers shoppers face, increase their quality of life and thereby reduce food insecurity.
This work is really the fruit of a living relationship with a God who is in love with us, who encounters us in the Sacraments in church as well on the streets and homes of our neighborhood.
Our application process is a time of mutual discernment between the Riverwest Food Pantry and yourself. We encourage you to entrust yourself and your application to God in prayer.
