Festa is a movement of caring professionals and volunteers who want to love and serve their neighbors. Every day we work together to mobilize communities, build relationships and connect people across socioeconomic, cultural, racial, ethnic, and religious barriers. We partner with families and children facing suburban poverty in Central Ohio and beyond, connecting them to people and resources to help them take steps OUT of poverty-in this generation. Out of 1.32 million Central Ohio residents, 155,800 (10%) and counting are New American immigrants and refugees.166,800 Central Ohio residents are currently facing poverty, 32,240 (19%) of whom are immigrants. Festa has facilitated a Free Summer Lunch Camp since 2007; we have served 185,045 meals over the last 17 years, fighting hunger and its effects in our community. Our other programs include the 3-Generation Family ESL Program, Good Tidings Christmas Store, Connecting to Resources, and more. A VISTA member will help Festa further our services to address the needs of those facing poverty in Central Ohio.
