Please review the available slots below and click on the button to sign up. 

  • Due to Covid-19, we are offering only a limited number of volunteer spots each month. 
  • With a skeleton crew of workers (so that we may social distance), it is vital that our volunteers show up or cancel their spot in sufficient time that someone else can take it. 
  • We require that all volunteers wear face masks and social distance during this service outreach.  We will provide gloves. 
  • Adults only due to Covid-19. 
  • 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 140 students at St. Barnabas Catholic School, Holy Family Catholic School and Simmons Middle School.

Thank you for your stewardship support,
