Second Harvest

The boys’ school has a great program to deal with uneaten portions of their lunches. Through Second Harvest, the students are encouraged to leave fruit, sandwiches, and snacks in special bins that are delivered to a 40-bed shelter for youth across the street. The students can also volunteer to deliver the food as part of the extensive community service program the school facilitates.

I also learned on the weekend that it was some students from this school that started the Out of the Cold Program in Toronto twenty years ago. Our parish participates in the program, but due to much needed repair work in the church basement, we’re looking for a another neighborhood church to provide space this winter.
