This year’s food pantry has been a quite busy and successful one! Catholic Charities serves 55 families per week on each Tuesday and Thursday to help those in need. Our food pantry has received numerous donations from different parishes and members of the community. We constantly see a great need for toiletries, personal items, and also microwavable foods for those who do not have access to a stove to prepare certain foods. This month our food pantry has a great need for toiletries, pasta sauce, and white rice. William Kent Lewis was recognized at our 2014 Vineyard of Hope this year for the Fruit of the Vine Award. Kent has been volunteering and serving our food pantry for over 3 years and has also completed over 1000 hours within our food pantry. Kent has shown much dedication and commitment to helping out at the food pantry. We thank him for his time and commitment to serve those in need.
