Omaha parish, charities give food to the needy

Fresh produce, pastries and meat were among food items given to more than 220 households May 20 at St. Peter Church in Omaha.

The parish’s St. Vincent de Paul Society teamed up with Catholic Charities and Food Bank for the Heartland for a fifth straight spring to help the needy.

The groups hold a similar event each fall, and because the need is so great, more events could be scheduled in the future, said Cindy Engelkamp, president of the society’s St. Peter chapter.
