During the summer, we are faced with a significant decrease in food donations. A lack of food donations can have a devastating impact on individuals and families who rely on our support. Many families, especially those with children, struggle to provide enough food when school-based meal programs are not available. To combat this issue we have a Kids Summer Food program, which provides free meals to kids. But for adults who struggle to keep food on their table, more help is needed. That’s where our parish and community food drives come in!
Parish and community food drives are held throughout the year and provide a convenient way for people to contribute. Whether you can spare a few canned goods or are able to donate a larger quantity, every bit makes a difference. We encourage you to look through your pantry, gather non-perishable food items and bring them to our designated drop-off locations. Additionally, monetary donations are also greatly appreciated as they allow us to purchase fresh produce and other essential items that are in high demand.
Together, we can help alleviate hunger in our community!
