Saint Agnes Food Pantry
Please join us Saturday morning, April 23, for our monthly Food Pantry. The Dare To Care food truck will arrive at 9:00 a.m. and the driver will offload our food inventory with a pallet jack. We will unwrap, arrange and set out the food items. We’ll begin serving guests at 10:00 a.m. and the pantry will remain open until 11:30 a.m.
Simulating a grocery store experience, guests will select their food and use grocery carts to transport the selected items to their cars. In operating the Pantry, volunteers will assemble food on the tables; collect and break down packaging materials for the recycle dumpster; welcome guests and provide assistance transporting food to their cars; retrieve grocery carts from the parking lot; assist with clean-up; and return tables and carts to their proper locations, etc.
On Saturday, February 23, the St. Agnes Food Pantry hosted 139 families, benefiting a total of 417 people, including 3 service veterans. The Pantry was staffed by 50+ parish volunteers and our third grade students contributed by donating a large supply of baby diapers and working the Pantry. Several Girl Scouts managed the used book table and Mike Frick prepared a giant pot of delicious vegetable beef soup which was distributed to guests and volunteers. Afterward, a small surplus of fresh produce was delivered to St. Vincent DePaul for its pantry operation.
We are glad to have your support regardless of the amount of time you are able to work. Hope to see you Saturday morning!
