Hibernian Hunger Project
The Hibernian Hunger Project is a nationwide community service program that feeds thousands of needy people through
a series of events that run throughout the year. The Project was conceived by Bob Gessler, Philadelphia County Board &
AOH Division 87 President in 1999. In March 2000 the very first H.H.P. Cook-In was held by the Philadelphia Ancient Order
of Hibernians (A.O.H.) and Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians (L.A.O.H.) in remembrance of the more than one million Irish
people who died of starvation and related diseases during the Great Irish Famine.
In 2003 the program went “national,” and similar Hibernian efforts to feed the less fortunate took place
across the country to coincide with the St. Patrick’s Day weekend.
Black Jack Kehoe are collecting any wearable clothing, adult, children and infant clothing. Please bring them to any meeting
and the Catholic Action Chairperson will make arrangements for a BJK member to pick them up.
