Ongoing Family Life Center Food Pantry Ministry
The St. Stephen Emergency Food Pantry continues to operate on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:00 AM to Noon.
On average, each month, our pantry serves over 70 households with more than 165 people being assisted.
We continue to need your help.
Please bring nonperishable foods/goods and/or personal care products when you come to mass.
Place them in the baskets by our church doors.
You will see our food pantry signs.
This is an ongoing ministry and we sincerely appreciate your support and generosity.
