FOOD PANTRY

In service to our community we seek to provide to all of those in need in keeping  with the Catholic Church commitment to social justice. We also serve food to those in need on Mondays and Wednesdays between 10:00 am-2:00 pm in our Saint Anthony Food Pantry.  Please arrive as early as possible, dependent on wait times, if arriving near closing time at 2:00 pm, service is not guaranteed.  Ubaldo Cisneros, ucisneros@stanthonyparish.org, is our Social Ministry Coordinator.  We feed over 1,000 people a month.

We always need more volunteers for the Church Food Pantry which feeds hundreds of people every month. We need help (a) collecting food from local groceries, restaurants, and bakeries who generously donate to our pantry; (b) processing clients who are eligible to receive the food; c) distributing the food to the needy that come to our pantry; and (d) hospitality-greeting/directing visitors.  Most of the work is on Mondays and Wednesdays within the hours of 8:30 am to 2:00 pm. Enthusiasm to help others and dependability are important. We try to accommodate individual work schedules and frequency. Any amount of time you can dedicate weekly or even monthly will help.  Contact Mike Korin, (703) 642-8284.
