On December 18, Nimlok’s Chicago-area distributor, Nimlok Chicago of Chicago, Illinois, volunteered their time at A Just Harvest in Rogers Park, Illinois for the second year in a row. A Just Harvest’s community kitchen is the largest and only self-standing community soup kitchen in the Chicago metro area, serving nutritious meals 365 days a year.
"It was eye opening to see what it takes to do every night to make sure people are fed,” said Nimlok Chicago Sales Consultant Maria Valdovinos about her first year volunteering. “But it was even more rewarding to look around and see my second family pulling together for the same cause. I'm proud to be part of such a giving group."
