Clergy Corner, Oct. 12, 2018

Each Monday afternoon, dozens of volunteers gather in the basement of Community United Church of Christ on the University of Illinois campus with one purpose: to feed the hungry.

Many of them slice vegetables or stir food cooking over the church's stove. Some set the tables. Others prepare to serve as waiters or waitresses.
