Today, with an early start we had breakfast and walked to the Thiele Center, in the St. Aloysius Parish, right near Josephinum. We packed bags with non-perishables like canned veggies, pasta, Pop Tarts, and more. After a little while, half of the group walked back to Josephinum to make sandwiches while the rest of the group handed out the rest of the packages of food to the clients of the Thiele Center.
Wednesday started off with a late wake up. Once chores were done, everyone gathered upstairs for some breakfast quesadillas. An alumna from Josephinum, Ashley Galvan, came and spoke to us about Logan Square. This area if one of many in Chicago that has issues with gentrification and the rising costs of basic necessities in neighborhoods that once belonged to lower income families.
