University City Hospitality Coalition provides meals to hungry and homeless people in University City six days a week at local churches and the Hillel Foundation at Penn.
St. Mary’s founded UCHC in the 1980s after a homeless man froze to death on Locust Walk, and we now serve as the program’s food storage center as well as providing a hot meal on Thursday evening and a bag lunch on Saturday and on summer Sundays when Hillel is closed.
In addition to providing meals, UCHC offers medical, dental, legal and social services to those in need, in partnership with Penn’s professional schools. The long-term meals coordinator for UCHC is a member of St. Mary’s. Volunteers prepare a hot meal for the benefit of University City’s homeless community.
