St. Vincent de Paul is serving up a ton of food.
- 600 pounds of fried fish,
- 2,800 hush puppies,
- 100 pounds of coleslaw,
- and 200 pounds of green beans.
That’s about how much food St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church in Cape Girardeau is serving up each Friday during Lent.
The goal: feed more than 700 people while raising money to support local charities and missions abroad.
John Ryan, current president of the Men’s Association, says it is a long-standing tradition here. He takes us behind the scenes for a closer look at how all of this is prepared.
