Inspired by the spirit of St. Francis and under the pastoral leadership of Sacred Heart/St. Joseph Parish, this mission is an outward expression of our Catholic beliefs.

Volunteers make hundreds of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches daily. The rest of the menu varies day by day as God provides. Local grocery stores and restaurants donate liberally to help provide filling and nutritious food. 

Every Friday afternoon, a food pantry is held. Donations are needed to fill these bags with healthy food to nourish our neighbors. Hold a food drive or just bring a few cans yourself - everything is needed! Donations can be dropped off Monday through Friday from 8 AM  to 3 PM. What should you bring? Low sodium, low sugar and high fiber foods are best. Please, no glass jars or expired foods.

Please consider supporting our mission.  To donate with electronically click here: DONATE
