It's one of those rare school projects that really has the potential to make a difference — 90 students from three Vancouver faith-based schools handed out food, hope and donations in the DTES community.

It's an opportunity for the Catholic, Muslim and Jewish students to not only help those in the community that need it, but also learn more about each other along the way.
