Toledo Labre Project

Inspired by other area schools, Campus Ministry students launched the Labre Project at Lourdes University in August 2014.

Each Wednesday afternoon (even when classes are not in session), students gather at the Campus Ministry House to dish out casseroles, bag chips and cookies, make sandwiches, and prepare hot chocolate or lemonade.

Students and staff then head out into the community and serve these meals from our vans. Anyone who comes receives a meal—no questions asked.

Are you interested in participating in our weekly outreach? Would you like to donate a casserole to this effort? Let us know by following the link to the Labre Outreach Spring 2024 Signup.

The Labre Project is grateful for any and all donations of the following supplies. (For a printable a brochure, click here.)
