Our local Food Bank’s shelves empty quickly because times are tough for many. To place the less fortunate first, please bring a suggested food item to church the first Sunday of each month. Folks typically do not donate these staples and the Food Bank must otherwise purchase them at retail prices to complete their food baskets. For your convenience, our parish calendar will list them too.

“If you offer your food to the hungry and satisfy the needs of the afflicted, then your light shall rise in the darkness and your gloom be like the noonday.” —Isaiah 58:10 (NRSV)
