Food Pantry at St Michaels Litchfield
The Vestry and Pantry Steering Committee are in the process of determining how to go about safely re-opening the Food Pantry, possibly in August, as the Town of Litchfield winds down their efforts at the Litchfield Community Center. Stay tuned for further information and opportunities for helping in that effort.
Meanwhile, the food on our “always open” shelves is running a little low. Can you help us? We especially need the following items:
Small packages are best so that we may serve as many people as we can. Suggested places to do your Pantry shopping and make your donation most cost effective are Costco, Ocean State Job Lot, BJ’s, Dollar Tree, and Aldi. Donations can be left in the pews on the left in the sanctuary or on the shelf in the entry of the Community House.
Wednesday, February 26th is the first day of Lent. Here’s a challenge for you! Each day in Lent, remove one item from your Pantry shelves that you are willing to donate to the Food Pantry at St. Michael’s. Put them into a grocery bag and on April 5th bring your bag to church for a dedication and we’ll fill our Pantry shelves. Many will be thankful for your generosity! Neighbors Feeding Neighbors!
