St. Peter's Food Cupboard
Leave what you can...
Summer is here, which means more children are home during mealtimes. Families under economic strain and food insecurity will feel the burden even more with escalating grocery prices and government cutbacks.We encourage those who are able to donate items to keep our cupboard well-stocked.
St. Peter's members can bring their donations to church on Sunday morning and put them in the red wagon, where they will be presented at the altar as part of the Offertory. Items can also be dropped off directly to the cupboard any time when the cupboard is open.
Items we urgently need: peanut butter and jelly, Spaghetti-O type canned pasta, dry pasta and sauce, soup, cereal, proteins (canned chicken, tuna, beef stew, etc.).
We currently have an overabundance of vegetables: green beans, corn, beans, carrots, etc.
Take what you need...
St. Peter's recognizes that many of our nearby brothers and sisters may go to bed without enough food for the next day. And with the recent changes to the SNAP program, we expect the need to be even greater. Our Food Cupboard is here to help. It stocks non-perishable food items as well as some personal care and household items.
The Food Cupboard is open every day from 8:00am to 8:00pm to anyone in need. It is located directly inside the parish hall through the back doors off the parking lot.
Admitting that you need assistance to get by can be an embarrassing experience. You are welcome to walk in and help yourself without asking at the office.
