University of Rochester students will prepare a hot meal and take it to a local emergency homeless shelter to serve the residents. The REACH shelter is a temporary shelter organized by various faith communities in Rochester to provide housing for the most chronically homeless residents of Rochester who would otherwise be on the street or in tents. The REACH shelter provides housing and support services throughout our harsh winter. The students gather at the university to prepare the food and to dialogue about their shared value of service and hospitality and then go together to serve the food and interact with the residents. The students represent the variety of religious traditions that are part of our Interfaith Chapel including Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist and Hindu.
