Support our Food Pantry & Meals on Wheels
At St. Jude Catholic Community we strive to serve those in need with respect, kindness and confidentiality. We provide non-perishable food items to share with our guests to temporarily help bridge the gap for those with financial difficulties.
Our generous parishioners, Knights of Columbus and visitors provide food donations as well as monetary donations.
Volunteers are needed! Responsibilities include restocking and organizing the shelves; have direct client interaction; getting groceries out to the vehicles of pantry clients and making sure everyone is welcomed with dignity and respect as our brothers and sisters in Christ.
Every Tuesday, at 9 am we sort and stock and check dates on the food items. On the 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month the food pantry is open from 10 am until 12 noon to serve our guests. Your gift of time and talent would be most appreciated. Please contact the parish office 352-347-0154 if you are available for even one hour!
Your donation(s) of non-perishable food items can be placed in the baskets in the foyer of the church.
May God bless you abundantly for expressing your love and care to those in need in our community.
Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.
And in the church God has appointed . . . those able to help others.
l Corinthians 12: 27-28
