“Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have;
God is pleased by sacrifices of that kind.”
Food & Fuel for Life is a parish project that enables the people of our parish to feed the hungry. It entails the gathering of food and monetary donations the first Sunday of every month. Different food pantries receive the canned and dry goods and one half of the money collected. The remainder of the money is donated to our own St Vincent de Paul Society. This collection is coordinated and usually delivered by our volunteer parishioners.
Most of these pantries are parish-based and directly provide food to those in need in their area. They are appreciative of any type of food donated. The ongoing need for any source of protein, low sugar fruit, canned or dried milk and baby care products, as well as personal hygiene products, are usually requested.
The following are the Food Pantries we serve each month:
