Philoptochos ladies at the Feed the Hungry Event


Every other Tuesday, the Philoptochos Chapters of our Chicago Metropolitan area prepare and serve a warm meal at the Annunciation Cathedral on LaSalle.  Approximately 100 people come to the Cathedral to enjoy a warm lunch.  Our Saint Spyridon Philoptochos has the 2nd Tuesday in November.  Traditionally the meal is prepared from the day before and about fifteen women transport the food and all the supplies for the Feed the Hungry Event.  At the same time, a group of volunteers gathers winter clothing to distribute the homeless since our day coincides with the onset of the cold season in Chicago.  We usually collect coats, jackets, new undergarments, socks, hats, and scarfs, starting in September till the first week in November in order to prepare the delivery to the Cathedral.
