- At this time, we are offering only a limited number of volunteer spots each month.
- With a smaller crew of workers (so that we may still practing social distancing), it is vital that our volunteers show up or cancel their spot in sufficient time that someone else may take it.
- At this time, our preference is adults only. This may change in the future.
- You will receive a reminder notice 2 days before your date of service.
- Please do not arrive early; it will not speed the process.
This ministry assembles bags of non-perishable food (both donated by parishioners and purchased by the church through cash donations) to students who have been identified by their schools as food insecure over the weekends when they cannot access school breakfast and lunch programs. These bags of food are discreetly placed in their backpacks by school personnel. We currently support 105 students at Holy Family Catholic School and Simmons Middle School. We expect to take on another school in the near future.
Thank you for your stewardship support,
