The food pantry ministry supplements the pantries of local families, honoring self-declared need. Recipients may choose foods best for their household. Ministry volunteers load the food directly into client vehicles.

Receiving from St. Mary Parish Pantry

When is the pantry open? We are open on Mondays from 10:00 am – 12:00 noon. Park your vehicle in the main lot outside the church. Line-up begins at 9:30 am.

How do I register? The first time you visit us we will ask a few questions and add you to our list. At future visits, we will check you in by asking your name.

What should I bring? There is no need to bring anything to receive food. You are welcome to bring reusable bags for packing your food.

Where do I go to get the food? Enter Marian Hall at the green door, at the bottom of the outdoor staircase, on the west side of the church building.

What kind of food will you give me? You may choose from an assortment of non-perishable foods, fresh produce, frozen meats, fresh eggs, assorted dairy and frozen foods, plus bakery items. On average you can expect to receive about 50 lbs. of food.
