Loaves & Fishes Community Services
This pantry began in a small closet at St. Raphael in 1984 and has now grown to become its own not-for-profit agency serving over 10,000 people (over 4,000 children and 2,500 households) per month.
St. Raphael continues its support of the pantry by collecting non-perishable food each Sunday and providing envelopes for monetary donations the 2nd weekend of each month.
Parishioners may also help at the pantry by packing grocery bags and assisting with food distribution, sorting food or stocking shelves, or delivering groceries to the homebound.
St. Raphael hosts a Harvest Sunday food drive for Loaves & Fishes every May led by the teens. In addition we have a yearly collection of cleaning supplies through our Bucket Brigade.
Time Commitment: Varies
