Hanover Knights Team up for Hot Meal Program for Local Communities

Knights of Columbus from Hanover Council 871 and San Jose Council 16069, in coordination with office staff from St. Joseph Parish in Hanover, have addressed the community need for food during several months of the pandemic.
The dedicated volunteers prepared, served and delivered hot meals every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from March through July, caring for thousands of people in need from the Hanover, Gettysburg and York areas.
Leading the program was Auggie Perez, Ray Johns and Pam McMaster, with the assistance of Monsignor James Lyons, pastor of St. Joseph Parish, and office staff members Helen Smith, Stacey Pellas, Sheri Golden, Father Ignacio Palomino and Deacon Thomas Aumen.
Other dedicated volunteers who were involved include Knights Wayne Groft, Marc Heppding, Will Smith, Carl Waldman and Terrance Golden, Principal of St. Joseph School. Meals varied from day to day and included turkey pot pie, chicken broccoli alfredo, ham and green beans with scalloped potatoes, Greek chicken, Reuben sandwiches and hotdogs. More than $7,000 was donated by St. Joseph parishioners and community members to help fund the program.
