Nourishing Hope is thrilled to announce the hiring of Natia Barnett, the organization’s first program expansion manager. The new position is designed to help build new partnerships with trusted organizations in communities in Chicago’s South and West Sides that have endured decades of inequitable access to food and other resources.
During the past two years, Nourishing Hope responded to a historic need for food assistance and social services that was unlike any other time in our 50-year existence. Put simply, we could not have risen to the challenge without the outpouring of support from our donors, volunteers and community partners.We are overwhelmed with gratitude. Thank you for your unflagging compassion and generosity.
You can find details on our historic pandemic response, the neighbors we serve, our food programs, transformational gifts and much more in our 2020-2021 annual report.
To keep our volunteers, staff, and community healthy and safe, we’ve had to make some difficult decisions due to the recent spike in COVID cases. To reduce the risk of transmission before the holidays, we will not be distributing food on Thursday, Dec. 23.
Please read here for more details, as well as a reminder about our upcoming holiday closures. Social services, such as mental wellness counseling, and job and housing assistance, are available virtually. Drop-in social services will resume Jan. 4.
