Why are you volunteering with Pilot Light?
I wanted to volunteer with Pilot Light to become more involved with youth in Chicago, and to find a way to intersect two of my passions: food and working with non-profits.
What is your favorite food or meal?
My favorite food is probably cheese – you can’t ever go wrong with a great cheese and charcuterie spread!
