Every Monday night—rain or shine, holiday or school day, summer or winter—students from St. Ursula Academy and St. John’s Jesuit High School come together in a simple act of faith: offering food and friendship to the hungry and homeless of inner-city Toledo.
Students meet each Monday afternoon at one of the two schools, where they make and package food for the hungry and homeless in Toledo. After the food is ready, they hold a brief prayer service. Then, the group members ride together to three locations, where they distribute food and interact with community members, who often simply want to have a conversation. Afterward, the students head back to the school to reflect on the people they met, pray for each of them, and note any special needs for the next visit.
Opportunities include Glass city Marathon, Respect Life, Back to School drives.
