Pheed Philadelphia

‘Pheed Philadelphia’ is a soup kitchen program at La Salle University aimed to fighting hunger in the local community.

This student organization works throughout the Philadelphia area and serves food to people in places such as the St. Francis Soup Kitchen, the Face-to-Face program at St. Vincent de Paul Parish and Sunday Breakfast Rescue Mission.

Philadelphia is ranked eighth among cities in America where people do not have enough food, which is a huge reason why students like Molly Mahon and Becca Long have been involved since their first days at La Salle.

“I think it’s really good to step off this campus and see what’s going on, like, two miles down the road someone is hungry right now,” Mahon said. “They probably don’t have a meal for tomorrow, either, so to step out of my reality and constantly be reminded of that is something that’s always been interesting to me.”

Welcome! What is Cattai’s Corner?

Welcome to Cattai’s Corner!

For those of you looking to find out what this blog is exactly about, I’ll explain it as briefly as possible: Cattai’s Corner is a blog that encompasses my opinions, ideas and thoughts on various topics in America (whether it be sports, health, entertainment, politics and so on).

This blog was inspired by my COM 356 teacher, Professor Beatty, who asked the students to create a blog to cover nutrition. I decided to use this blog to my advantage, not only for class work, but also for anything else that I find interesting that you, the reader, may too.

It’s going to be a fun time interacting with you all. Hopefully it will be worth your while.
