Soup Kitchen Trip
MSDA students served lunch at St. Ann’s Soup Kitchen in Newark. Six students and Campus Minister Sister Lena Picillo, OP prepared food for the noon lunch and served over 200 meals to women, children, and men. The diners were so grateful for the meal and many approached the MSDA group to express their thanks.
One of the students said, “This was an eye-opener for me!” Sister Lena shared that the Mount students took on every task in a caring and generous way. The group also had the opportunity to see the space in which Franciscan Charities offers weekly reading instruction and planned-learning activities through their Children’s Literacy Program.
