CLEVELAND - It’s a place where anyone in need can get a meal and that includes holidays. The folks at St. Augustine Hunger Center are getting ready for Easter dinner. They are expected to serve about 10,000 people.

The meals will be served at 16 different sites and they will also deliver meals to the home-bound throughout Northeast Ohio.

With Easter just about a week away, Sister Corita Ambro said there is still a need for food donations.

"I do need hams yet. That's a big thing for me, so getting hams. I have a number of them ready. But we have been working on those, but I am a little bit short on ham. So, that would be a wonderful thing,” she said.

Sweet potatoes, potatoes, and other perishable food items to complete the Easter dinner are also needed.

Sister Corita said they are also in need of volunteers to pack and serve the meals, and especially to take meals to the homebound.

"We've got about 4,000 deliveries we're going to be doing this Easter Sunday. So I do need people who are willing to come and take the food to the shut-ins where ever they are on the east side, west side, south side,” Sister Ambro added.

Anyone in need of a meal or a ride to a site, or anyone wanting to donate food or to volunteer should call St. Augustine Church at (216) 781-5880.
