Marist College students are participating in a new program aimed at cooking and delivering tasty meals to families in the local community.
Community Meals sees the College working in partnership with the Kambah St Vincent de Paul Conference and Mary Help of Christians Parish in Pearce to identify the needs within the local community, and arrange delivery of meals to families in need of support.
In 2016, students at Marist College Canberra completed more than 19,600 hours of service, both within and beyond the Marist community. This program is another example of our students connecting with what our founder St Marcellin Champagnat and Marist is all about, in creating good men and good citizens.
Nathan Ahearne, Director of Faith Formation, said “Members of our Senior Vinnies group, which includes students from Years 11 and 12, have been showing great enthusiasm and will play an important role in this initiative, from helping to raise funds to purchase ingredients to cooking and freezing the meals.”
