St. Vincent’s To Make 25,000 Meals For Families In Need

March 24th, 2015

The associates of St. Vincent’s HealthCare will be preparing 25,000 meals for the community on Wednesday, March 25th as part of the health system’s continuing Mission of serving the poor and vulnerable. The meals will be prepared at all three medical centers in collaboration with Hunger Fight, a local charity dedicated to significantly reducing the number of hungry children and families in the First Coast and surrounding area.

“The Daughters of Charity brought the Mission to Jacksonville nearly 100 years ago. Each year on March 25th, the Daughters renew their religious vows of poverty, chastity, obedience and service to the poor,” said System Vice President of Mission Integration Tracie Loftis. “It is only fitting that St. Vincent’s and our associates use this day to renew our commitment to the Mission by helping feed thousands in our community who would otherwise go without food.”

The meals created by St. Vincent’s associates will be given to local charities in the area that will distribute them to families in need.
