Let’s Bag Hunger!       

Please help us to stock the shelves for the St John’s Food Bank.

Due to the cost of foods received from Quest doubling, the poor variety of foods on their list and the added fact that they now charge us $75.00 for a delivery charge, (cost has increased from $175.00 to $425.00!) we have come to the decision that we need to rely on local suppliers to buy food for the Food Bank and also take advantage of advertised sales.

For the month of July there will be an opportunity for parish members to fill a grocery bag with non – perishable items for the St John’s Food Bank. Grocery bags will be available at the back of the Church during this time.

We feed about 40 families at the current time.

Items needed to fill the Food Bank shelves are:

Canned goods such as: Soup, Tuna, Salmon, Fruits, Vegetables and Tomatoes.

Pasta, Pasta Sauce, Macaroni and Cheese, Instant Noodles, Cereals, Granola bars, Cookies, Juice.

Smaller sized jars approx. 750 g. or less of peanut butter and Jam are preferable.

Large bags of flour, sugar, rolled oats and rice are also useful as they can be repackaged into bags of smaller amounts to distribute.

The Food Bank is a way for St. John’s to reach out to those less fortunate in our community and every donation is greatly
