The Riverwest Food Pantry Mission House
Consonant with our history of being a volunteer run organization. Our pantries are primarily staffed by a community of volunteers who live in the heart of the Riverwest and Harambee neighborhoods. We are dedicated to supportive communal living and ongoing formation in light of the Catholic Tradition. Our goal is to be servants, whose experience of solidarity with the poor empowers us to be advocates for justice. Through this work, we walk with people in need while revitalizing the urban Church. This is more than a year long internship – it is a mission and a way of life!
The Mission House offers full-time interns opportunies to:
Live the Gospel in an intentional community that offers direct service to the marginalized
Encounter Christ through prayer and study in the tradition of the Catholic Church
Develop nonprofit management skills in hunger relief and community development practices
Grow in simple, sustainable living practices
