Each week we stop off at Safeway or Giant to buy groceries for our families.  We pick up some pasta and sauce for tonight, maybe some peanut butter and jelly for the kids' lunches, and a can of tuna for a casserole later in the week.  Hopefully, while we are shopping for our family, we remember to shop for "our family", those countless thousands right in our parish area who are out of work and struggling to put food on their families' tables.

At St. Camillus we ask each person to try and bring at least one food item each Sunday to help replenish our two food pantries. We believe that if "each one brings one" when they come to Mass, we can go a long way toward wiping out hunger in our neighborhood.  This is stewardship at its most basic- realizing how blessed we are to have enough money to buy enough food for our families and, out of that gratitude, sharing with others whose families otherwise might go without. Below is a list of the most needed items.

The Food Pantry Wants Your Stories

As you might know, the Pantry has seen record numbers of families needing assistance this year and are continually looking for volunteers and contributors to help us obtain more resources to purchase food. 

 

To support this effort, they would like to begin featuring brief stories in the weekly bulletin and in our newsletter on "Why I Volunteer?" and "Why I Give?" If you've done this great work yourself, consider inspiring others by sharing your story!
