Teens feed homeless

-A A +A

Ask a Los Alamos High School student what they’d like to do on summer vacation, one unique answer given by a couple dozen teens was “to serve the poor and homeless.”
Youth and chaperones from Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish traveled down to the Fray Antonio’s Soup Kitchen in Albuquerque to join with the Community of Franciscan Friars of the Renewal in their work.
The Fray Antonio soup kitchen has been open since August 2012 and currently serves lunch on Wednesdays.
After a quick introduction to the workings of the kitchen by Brother Giles, the youth set about serving drinks and meals to the homeless men and women seated in the Friar’s indoor and outdoor dining area.
Several volunteers from the Albuquerque area were also busy with cooking, plating food and washing up pots and pans.
The IHM youth will be serving once again in the Fray Antonio Soup Kitchen on July 23 and they’d like to ask other Los Alamos citizens for help in serving the poor through food donations.
On July 22, the teens will be walking through Western Area on a “Scavenger Hunt” to collect canned foods and needed supplies for the Friars.
Food and supplies can be dropped off at the John Paul the Great Center at Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish, 3700 Canyon Road.
