Every person has a right to life and to the material and spiritual support required to live a truly human existence. The right to a truly human life logically leads to the right to enough food to sustain a life with dignity. The poverty and hunger that diminish the lives of millions in our own land and in so many other countries are fundamental threats to human life and dignity and demand a response from believers.

Our parish food pantry always needs donations and volunteers. If you have time to volunteer on Tuesdays or Saturdays, come help us! Many hands make light work, and we invite you to share your gifts including your smile, your words of encouragement, skills at organizing shelves, managing paperwork, or handling grocery items, not to mention the capacity to carry bags of grocery items up and down stairs.
So many people have donated and volunteered to make our parish Food Pantry a resource for our community. The need is great, and we rejoice at this opportunity to respond as our faith instructs us.
DONATE GROCERY ITEMS:
Each month in the bulletin we list items that are in greatest need. When you shop for your household groceries consider adding a few items to bring with you to church and donate to the food pantry. Some suggestions would be any nonperishable, nutritious grocery items that do not require refrigeration, such as cereal, shelf-stable milk, juice, ready-to-eat meals, canned soup, and nutritious staples such as flour, sugar, beans, rice, pasta, etc. as well as non-food grocery items such as toiletries and paper goods. You may leave your donations in the containers for food pantry donations that are located inside all entrances of the church.
A fund for the Food Pantry has been set up in our parish’s Online Giving portal. You are able to schedule one-time or recurring contributions in the amount and frequency that works best for you. Financial donations may also be made by check, either bring or mail to the rectory or add to the collection at Mass.
WHY A FOOD PANTRY:
To feed the hungry is one of the seven corporal works of mercy.
