John answered,

The man who has two tunics is to share with him who has none;

and he who has food is to do likewise.”

Luke 3:11

Operating the St. Vincent de Paul Emergency Food Pantry on a daily basis can be a challenge. In an average month nearly 3000 pounds of food are distributed through  PANTRY PACKAGES. Without monetary and non-perishable donations from churches, businesses and individuals, our shelves of the St. Vincent de Paul Emergency Food Pantry would be bare. This community partnership has grown throughout the years to include BEYOND THE PANTRY Beyond the Pantry provides those in need with paper products, household items, cleaning supplies, baby items, and more.
