Northwestern Mutual Foundation celebrates opening of Amani Community Neighborhood Food Pantry

April 4, 2016


On Thursday, March 24, 2016 Northwestern Mutual Foundation, Hunger Task Force and Greater Little Hill Church joined forces to help celebrate the ribbon cutting on Little Hill’s food pantry now called the Amani Community Neighborhood Food Pantry. The pantry has been in the Amani neighborhood for 20 years, but was nothing more than a “Pastor’s Closet.” Now with generous funding from Northwestern Mutual Foundation, the church was able to open a larger pantry with professional equipment capable of servicing the families of the Amani neighborhood with healthy and nutritious emergency food. Pictured at the grand-opening are (from left) Hunger Task Force executive director Sherrie Tussler; Greater Little Hill Pastor Bernie Allen; Greater Little Hill First Lady Mattie Allen; recipients of Amani Community Neighborhood Food Pantry Etta McChristian and Stacey Manuel; and Northwestern Mutual Foundation president John Kordsmeier.
