The USDA currently defines Wilmington’s east side as a “food desert,” meaning that the area lacks access to affordable and nutritious foods. St. Patrick’s aims to meet this need through its food distribution program. Funds from SALSTHON 2017 will allow St. Patrick’s Center to purchase a new ground floor building in the neighbordhood for food distribution, solving space and logistical issues in their current facility. But we can’t do this without you! Through March 18, Salesianum, Padua, and Ursuline students will be on a fundraising blitz in an effort to raise over $150,000 to put the first dollars down for St. Patrick’s Center's new facility. Join us in making a difference!
