Our fall food drive for Thanksgiving and Christmas Holiday Meal Baskets begins in October and continues through mid- December. We usually serve 60-70 families for each holiday, in addition to our regular Food Pantry offerings twice a week to the hungry in our community.
Empty grocery bags will be in the back of church with a list of food items needed. Any of the following items would be greatly appreciated!
Holiday: canned yams, cranberry sauce, instant potatoes, scalloped potatoes, stuffing, canned fruit, Jello, green beans, corn, pudding, chicken broth
Meal in a Can: chili, stew, ravioli, hearty soup
Other: tuna, chicken, peanut butter, macaroni and cheese, jelly, spaghetti and sauce, cereal, oatmeal, canned vegetables, crackers, Rice-a Roni, ramen noodles, rice, beans (canned or bagged -- smaller sizes of approximately 1 lb. are easier to distribute).
Food donations can be brought to Mass and placed in the Food Pantry collection wagon. Donations are also accepted at the parish office Tuesday through Friday (9:00am to Noon and 1:00-3:00pm).
Financial donations are always welcome to provide for food, as well as to purchase turkeys for Thanksgiving and hams for Christmas. Just write “Food Pantry” on your donation and drop it in the offertory basket or bring it to the parish office.
