The people of God, who are the Church made visible in the world, must convince the world of the reality of the gospel or leave it unconvinced. There can be no evasion or delegation of this responsibility; the Church is either faithful as a witnessing and serving community, or it loses its vitality and its impact on an unbelieving world.

** the Food Pantry is constantly in need of replenishment. You can help.
-- Buy one or more $10 food cards next time you grocery shop
-- Buy extra of these (Just one grocery bag a month can help!)
- dried beans and/or rice, coffee, flour, corn meal
- Dried foods, Mac'n Cheese or 'just add water'
- canned soups, sausages (Vienna), corn, beans (red and black)
- crackers, peanut butter, cookies, cereals
- ready to heat: Chef Boyardee, Spaghettios, chili, heat-n-eat
- nothing perishable, nothing out of date
- NOTE: tend towards Latin American staples to make entire meals or
extend a family meal: things like the beans, rice (2-lb bags),
cornmeal (2-lb), canned tomatoes, flour (2-lb), soup stock, etc.
-- Better-yet, if able, push a second cart for the food pantry.
- Pay separately at checkout, keep receipt for tax purposes.
-- Most Costco and Sam's bulk items of canned and boxed food stuff still tends to be too big, even after breaking down the multi-packs. (e.g., commercial sized and 'value' sized portions of peanut butter, canned chili, et al, wherein, the cans or jars are the size of footballs and are really meant for businesses, buffets, picnics and bulk preparations.) It is best to shop at Safeway, Giant, Shoppers, Wal-Mart, Aldi, etc. for family or single-portion sizes. -- Try to use weekly coupons or discounts to save even more money on individual sized cans and jars, portions, and boxes.
