Feeding the poor for 20 years, one sandwich at a time

Twice a month for the past 20 years, the St. Vincent de Paul Society at St. Zachary Parish in Des Plaines has made sandwiches for the hungry and homeless. Why? “Because you have to feed the homeless,” said Dave Mueller, the society’s treasurer and the designated shopper for sandwich preparation nights. Mueller has been part of the sandwich making since the beginning. No one is sure exactly how it started.
