SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- With Election Day almost upon us, voters are busy making up their minds about the candidates. But, one group of volunteers in Syracuse have their minds on food rather than ballots.
Those folks spent their Saturday morning rolling 6,000 meatballs for the annual Election Day Spaghetti Supper at the Cathedral Academy at Pompei School. It is a tradition dating back to 63 years and has become a popular stop for candidates. The supper benefits the school, and organizers said the event helps shine a light on the work they do all year long.
"The school's very important to us. It's reaching out to a transitional population, the immigrants. We want those who govern us to know what's taking place here, and that there is a need, and we're doing all we can to meet that need," explained Father Daniel Caruso, Pastor at Our Lady of Pompei.
The supper runs from 11:30 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. on November 6th. Take out and delivery are available if you call the night before.
