“With food, the need is right here right now. We are the boots on the ground,” Mike Havala, CEO of Loaves and Fishes Community Services in Naperville, says.
Havala wasn’t fazed by Gov. Pritzker’s mandate to extend Illinois’ Stay at Home order until the end of May, just like he did what he had to do back in March, when the organization wasted no time in changing its model to accommodate the changes brought on by the coronavirus pandemic.
