SCOTCH PLAINS – Union Catholic Peer Ministers from the Social Justice Committee recently attended Seton Hall Prep’s “Summit on Hunger.” Eighteen schools sent students with the purpose of having students come together and work on strategies to help local communities deal with the issue of hunger.
Students participated in a series of workshops, focusing on topics such as legislative action and fundraising, to learn how schools can serve the hungry. Moving forward, Union Catholic High School will have a representative on the Hunger Council formed at the summit, which will meet periodically to see how schools can work together to fight this devastating issue in our communities.
Students from Union Catholic who attended the Hunger Summit were Emily Carpintero of Newark, Alexa DaSilva of Union, Stephen Cocuzza of Union, Jonathon Riedinger of Watchung, Ken DiGiovanni of Metuchen, Demi Teixeira of Union, Michael Pego of Kearny, and Michelle Arrojado of Port Reading.
