MEET OUR NEW FOOD PANTRY DIRECTOR: THE REV. DR. KAREN COLEMAN
We are delighted to welcome a new Helping Hands Food Pantry Interim Director, the Rev. Dr. Karen Coleman. Karen has long ties with St. James’s Cambridge, and is currently Priest-in-Charge at St. James’s Somerville, right up the road in Teele Square. She brings strong skills in grant-writing, a long experience with food ministry, and a passion for the theology of food that inspires her to visions not just of providing physical nourishment but nourishment of all kinds to all involved at Helping Hands. In addition to supplying the Pantry and overseeing the Pantry’s volunteer staff, Karen will be working closely with St. James’s Micah Fellow Reed Loy in studying our food pantry and the dynamics of food ministry throughout Cambridge, to see how we can best strengthen a ministry that is ever-more crucial in these hard times.
