St. Hugh’s Project HOPE was founded in 2004 by the youth of St. Hugh’s parish in response to the needs of the hungry, homeless and unemployed in the Huntington area. This ministry involves hundreds of volunteers from local schools, youth groups, businesses and other faith communities that have come together to aid in the operation of a mobile soup kitchen, bi-monthly meals and food delivery to a local homeless shelter.  100% of the proceeds from this event will go directly to feed the hungry in and around the Huntington area.
