Lent Food Drive
A time to hear the cry of the poor
Hunger is a reality for many in our community but it doesn't have to be. Help stock our St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry so that we can supply grocery bags full of healthy food products to our neighbors in need.
Many in our community face “food insecurity,” the inability to consistently put food on the table.
Food insecure households are not necessarily food insecure all the time. Food insecurity may reflect a household’s need to make trade-offs between important basic needs, such as housing or medical bills, and purchasing nutritionally adequate foods. Research shows that food-insecure adults face higher risks of chronic disease as well as depression and poor mental health. In addition to nutritional deficiencies, food insecurity among children is linked to poor academic outcomes.
Place your donations of non-perishable food products in the St. Vincent de Paul boxes at the church entrances any time before Easter Sunday. Financial contributions are also welcome. Please use the St. Vincent de Paul envelopes found in the pews and place in the collection basket.
Thank you for your generosity.
