For over thirty years, the parishioners of Old St. Joseph's Church and other volunteers in the community have responded to the need to feed the homeless and hungry poor in the neighborhood surrounding Old Saint Joseph's Church. Beginning in 1985,
Carewalk was created by Thomas Pesci, SJ, William Watters, SJ and parishioner Al Gury as a direct response to the homeless living on vents near the church.
Their collective effort to feed and warm those few quickly grew into a larger more organized program.
Faith, Food and Friends' is an all-volunteer outreach program that serves a nutritious and appetizing lunch three days a week.
