Holy Guardian Angels Food Pantry Collection

(formally St. Barbara Food Pantry)

July Restocking the Holy Guardian Angels Food Pantry

There will be two collections for the food pantry in July, Sunday, July 10th, and Sunday, July 24th, both from 9:00 AM until 11:00 AM at the entrance of the St. Louise de Marillac Church.  

 

Two years have passed since our first pantry collection began on June 14th, 2020.  The need was great due to a 300% increase in the number of individuals and families who, because of the economic effects of the Covid pandemic, relied on the Holy Guardian Angels Food Pantry for food assistance.  This great need has not subsided.  The Holy Guardian Angels Food Pantry has even expanded its space and services to meet the food insecurity needs in our own community.

 

Topping the most needed items list are: Bottled water, canned meals, canned tuna, canned meats, peanut butter, jelly, canned soups, boxed mac’n cheese, boxed dinner “sides” such as Knorr noodle mixes and Rice-a-Roni, instant mashed potatoes, and healthy snacks for children. 

 

Non-perishable food items always in need are: rice, pastas and sauces, all canned fruits and vegetables, dried beans, and bottled or canned juices.

 

Monetary donations are greatly appreciated, and checks should be payable to the Holy Guardian Angels Food PantryNo donation is too small. 

 

There will continue to be two food pantry collections each month throughout the summer.

Please mark your calendars for these August pantry collection dates:  August 14th and August  28th.

 

Our ongoing effort to keep the Holy Guardian Angels Food Pantry stocked would not be possible without the sacrifice and support of the parishioners and friends of Holy Guardian Angels Parish as well as the commitment of the many Sunday and Monday volunteers who collect, sort and deliver the food to the panty.  THANK YOU TO ALL!!!
