“…For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me.”
“Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of the least brothers of mine, you did for me.” Matthew 25:37-46

Food Pantry Shopping List
Your generous donations to our Food Pantry are always appreciated. If you can, please help us assist our growing list of parishioners in need. Monetary donations are always helpful, simply mark your envelope “Food Pantry.” PLEASE, do not drop off any used, clean clothing items to us. Conveniently, there are Clothing Donation Bins up the block, in front of St. Anthony’s parking lot on Sixth Street. Additionally, there are several Donation Bins in the BJ’s – ShopRite parking lot. Your clothing items are best dropped off at these convenient locations. Thank you and God Bless you for your continuous and generous support of this ministry.
Please help us to assure that all in our faith community can have homemade meals everyday by picking up a few items from our “suggested” shopping guideline list on your next trip to the grocery store. You do not need to donate every item on this list. Shop Rite or Pathmark Gift Cards are also welcome. Please no perishable items or open packages.
