Three Pillars: Feed, Educate, Serve 


Festa is serving our neighbors, ending poverty through life-changing relationships. It is still a distinctly Christian ministry, especially serving the suburban poor.

Festa Summer Lunch Camp

There are nearly 4,000 children in our community who are facing poverty. This means they go hungry. They miss meals, especially in the summer the same season they spend majority of their time alone while parents work and the cost of local camps are far beyond reach. For over 15 years, God has called Festa and UALC to stand in this summer hunger gap providing free Summer Lunch Camps feeding children’s body, mind, and spirit.


Camp runs June 10-August 2, 2024 and all ages of volunteers are welcome. We're also collecting non-perishable food for meal kits. Download the list of what to pack.  

Children's Restaurants 

Join us for brunch or lunch at the restaurants inside Festa's Free Summer Lunch Camp, run by children in grades 3-8.

Festa 3-Generation Family ESL Program

Serve New American Families

Learning English

Festa’s 3-Generation Family ESL program serves entire families — from 3 months to grandparent age — with the education each person needs to take steps out of poverty. Each school year, we welcome new American families seeking to learn English and move from surviving to thriving. While the adults are learning English, their children are cared for, fed dinner, and kept engaged in fun programming.


Volunteer Opportunities:

  • Adult classrooms

  • Children 0–5 years

  • School-age children with games or homework

  • As a “Dinner Angel”

Classes take place on Tuesday and Thursday nights from 6:00–8:30 pm at Mill Run Campus, Sept.-April.
