Parish offers 10,000 Easter meals to Clevelanders


CLEVELAND (WJW) — For the 49th year, St. Augustine Hunger Center and Parish in Tremont offered meals to those in need on Easter.

This time around they gave more than 10,000 meals out of their West 14th Street location and beyond to Northeast Ohioans, thanks to donations from the community.

“Many people continue to struggle considering current conditions,” Father Bill O’Donnell, a priest at St. Augustine Parish, said in a statement.

This year, the church passed out meals that are prepackaged. The meal packs included ham, veggies, a salad and dessert.

Meals were also being delivered to homeless shelters and other homes of people who called in advance.
