Feed My People (Pantry Ministry)

Ministry Description: 
Our ministry began in the Summer of 2015. The Holy Spirit placed God’s command on our hearts. “..feed my people.” We wanted to feed his people. But, it had to be good, healthy, solid food. God’s people deserve the best we can give.

Our priority is to help the struggling families in our parish. With the generous donations of St. Mary’s Church & School families, we have been able to provide 40 parish families in need with essential food staples on the last Saturday of every month.

The Feed My People Pantry provides paper grocery bags in the vestibule of the church with a grocery list attached, outlining the items needed for the family bags. Our parishioners fill a bag with whatever items they’ve chosen to purchase from the list. They are able to return the filled bags to the church vestibule or the parish office during the week.

Pantry Family Bag List:

  • 2# bags of Rice
  • 2 # bags of Beans
  • Pasta Noodles (spaghetti, rigatoni, penne, etc.)
  • Canned Tuna
