Serving others is one of the pillars of our faith. In Mother Teresa's wisdom, "We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty. We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty." Here at Aquinas, we strive to serve those in need in the Princeton community.
Loaves and Fishes
Loaves and Fishes soup kitchen serves hundreds of Trenton's hungry and homeless with hot food and drink. The soup kitchen features restaurant style service, where clients sit down and are served by volunteers, unlike other soup kitchens where food is dispensed in a cafeteria-like line. Aquinas provides interested students transportation to and from Trenton in order to help serve meals.
Students gather to volunteer at a farm four miles off campus (we go once a month). It is owned by a retired Princeton professor, Bob, and his wife Caroline. Tasks include weeding, harvesting, digging beds, shoveling manure, and tending to the chickens, cows, and goats. Please contact Kyle Lang for more information or to sign up!
