The St. Joseph Food Pantry assists over one hundred families each week. When we account for all of the adults and children who are benefiting, your donations are helping approximately 400 people every week.
Each week we prepare a standard bag of grocieries for each family, which includes items such as dry pasta, pasta sauce, canned beans and vegetables, tuna, top ramen, macaroni and cheese, toilet paper and a loaf of bread.
The most needed additional items are:
- Cereal and oatmeal
- Peanut butter
- Canned meat and fish
- Canned or boxed milk (soy, evaporated, sweetened condensed)
- Canned fruit
- Hamburger Helper
- Toiletries (shampoo, soap, deodorant, toothpaste and toothbrushes)
Donations to the St. Joseph Food Pantry can be made in the form of the aforementioned individual canned or boxed goods (no bulk items), cash or check (clearly note that the donation is for the food pantry), or gift cards (Stater Brothers, Von's, Dollar Tree).
We sincerely appreciate your continued support of our food pantry, so that we may provide our ongoing assistance to those most in need in our community.
May God's love and peace be with you!
