Pace students hold annual Hunger Fest event to feed the homeless
The students of Monsignor Edward Pace High School (PACE) recently held their second annual Hunger Fest event to help feed Miami’s homeless community.
Beginning on May 3, a group of 20 PACE students and members of the school’s faculty began 24 hours of fasting and prayer as a way to raise awareness for the many impoverished individuals who go hungry in their local community and around the world.
While going without food, students prepared sandwiches for local homeless shelters. This is the second year that the event was held at PACE after inheriting the annual tradition from Archbishop Curley Notre Dame, where it took place for 21 years before the school closed its doors in 2017.
The students, PACE staff, faculty, former Archbishop Curley faculty and several local schools like Our Lady of the Lakes Catholic School and St. Bartholomew Catholic School were actively involved in contributing food donations and some even attended the event. Participants prepared over 2,100 lunches for the homeless. In addition, a car wash was held for students and staff on May 3 which raised over $1,000 for PACE’s three sister schools in Haiti.
