Loaves and Fishes 2022 – How You Can Help

For more than 30 years, UUCWC and the Princeton UU Congregation have joined together to feed working poor and homeless people once per year at St Mary’s Cathedral in Trenton.

Rather than serving food at the Cathedral, we’ll be making take-out meals, just like last year. Working with the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Princeton we’ll make 300 meals and 400 bagged lunches.

If you would like to volunteer, please use Sign-Up Genius.

Here’s the Sign-Up Genius Link
