SAN DIEGO — Members, staff and volunteers from United Food and Commercial Workers Local 135 will gather to feed the homeless at St. Vincent de Paul Village here April 26-27.

UFCW Local 135 represents approximately 15,000 members in the retail and wholesale food and drug industries.

“On a daily basis, our members’ jobs involve getting fresh and nourishing food to customers in supermarkets and elsewhere,” said Mickey Kasparian, president of UFCW Local 135 and president of the San Diego and Imperial Counties Labor Council, in a statement. “But as good citizens it’s also our responsibility to get food to those who need it most and can’t afford it.”

Feeding the homeless at St. Vincent de Paul Village is the first of a new series of charitable activities sponsored by UFCW Local 135 to help fulfill its mission of serving and giving back to the community of San Diego.
