For their inaugural Feed a Family event March 13, St. Luke Church in McLean set a modest goal — feed 250 families. They exceeded their goal.

The 100 St. Luke parishioners — mostly families — came out on a dreary Sunday afternoon to support the nutritional needs of other families in the diocese.

The group worked together to pack cans of soup and bags of penne pasta into plastic storage bags to be delivered to the St. Lucy Project warehouse in Manassas.
