180,000 Meals for Local Pantries, Food for Kidz

On April 1, 2015,  students from St. Pius High School, Holy Ghost School, many of the parochial schools in the Archdiocese of Santa Fe, St. Pius Alumni and many other volunteers came together to packag 180,000 meals. About 80% of the packages stayed in New Mexico for distribution to local food pantries, including St. Felix Pantry, Rio Grande Food Project, St.Vincent DePaul Ministry at the Shrine of St. Bernadette,  the Wherry Elementary School Backpack Program and other sites. The other 20% was loaded onto a truck for delivery to Food for Kidz, which will distribute the packages to locations where the food is needed. Kids from St. Pius did a great job of hosting the event for another year, and special thanks goes to the M.A.D. Against Hunger committee and the faculty and staff at St. Pius who made it all possible. -Ali Frumkin
