For almost 75 years, the Food Bank at St. Mary’s has been helping the hungry in the Central District and beyond. Today, the Food Bank provides groceries to 6,700 people per week through the Walk-In Program, when anyone is welcome to come in and choose what they need for the week. In addition, the Food Bank delivers food to those in need who are unable to leave their homes and provides a “No-Cook” Program for those who are currently experiencing homelessness and don’t have access to cooking facilities.
Emerging Leaders will be providing direct service in the Food Bank, helping those who have come to shop for groceries – a friendly face and a helping hand can go almost as far as a bag of food for those in need. A few volunteers will also put their art talents to good use, helping the Food Bank create signage for their upcoming Gala fundraiser.
