Souper Bowl Sunday

Let’s stock the Food Pantry on “Souper” Bowl Sun­day, Feb. 1

It is time to go soup shop­ping! Feb. 1 is Super Bowl Sun­day but more impor­tant it is our chance to fill the food pantry shelves with soup! Last year we gave them 1312 cans. Now for the chal­lenge; if you brought one can last year, please bring two cans this year.

The pantry serves many house­holds, and the num­ber of peo­ple seek­ing help increas­es every month. When you buy soup, please take time to see how much pro­tein is in the can. If it is under sev­en grams, it is con­sid­ered a mis­cel­la­neous food item instead of a pro­tein.

Food may be dropped off in the food col­lec­tion bins in the main cor­ri­dor of the church.Thank you for help­ing to feed our Lord’s sheep.

Cash, checks also appreciated

The Food Pantry also wel­comes dona­tions of cash or check, as they can pur­chase food at dis­count­ed prices. Checks may be writ­ten to St. Joseph the Work­er Food Pantry, and placed in the offer­ing plate on Sun­day or brought to the office on week­days.
