This Sunday, Our Lady of the Lake church will be collecting food for St. John’s Soup Kitchen in Newark. The soup kitchen feeds over 400 people daily and OLL is the largest single contributor to its pantry. A group of volunteers from the church also feeds the hungry at St. John’s one Tuesday a month. Much-needed items include canned beans and soup, cereal, rice, canned green beans and peas, coffee and tea. Bags can be left in the church vestibule until 1 p.m.
