Grade 5 Visits St. Vincent de Paul
Recently, Grade 5 students served lunch at St. Vincent de Paul’s public and family kitchens in downtown San Diego.
Combined, the two classes served well over a thousand meals, bussed tables, and restocked condiments and paper goods.
Some students distributed food behind the counter, while others delivered meals to the tables for visitors who were not ambulatory.
As one student wrote in a post-trip reflection, “Today was meaningful and really showed me that just a little bit of my time really means a lot to someone in need.”
The students were moved by their visit, experiencing humility and compassion while performing this wonderful service for others in their community.
