Communities of Generosity: Food, Faith & Fellowship

The mission of Riverwest Food Pantry in Milwaukee is not only to relieve hunger, but also to create a community where everyone gives and everyone receives.  Learn how a Catholic intentional “community of generosity” combines a mission house, daily prayer, corporal works of mercy, and attention to the structural causes of poverty.
