Because of Queen of Angels’ support of the Heifer Project’s hunger reduction and anti-poverty programs, we have again been invited to participate in “Faith and Food,” a Heifer-supported initiative that offers members of Chicago congregations the chance to purchase organic produce and farm-fresh eggs while supporting lives of dignity for those who raise the food. Working with Heifer and Home Grown Wisconsin, Queen of Angels parishioners and others in Ravenswood can receive 20 weekly shipments of locally grown, organic produce from Heifer-supported farmers.
Deliveries don’t begin until June but parishioners who sign up before March 15 receive a discount on their share of produce. Visit the parish peace and justice website www.peaceandjusticechicago.com to learn more. Or call Cliff McIntosh at 773-278-7625 or Home Grown Wisconsin’s Suzanne Rubenstein at 608-341-8939 for more information or to sign up.
