St. Francis’s Feeding Ministries

Welcome! If “feeding the hungry” is one of your favorite corporeal works of mercy, then this is the place to get all your information about upcoming opportunities through our parish ministries. We have opportunities where you can serve with your families, as a group, or individually. Some opportunities request donated non-perishable food; others prepare casseroles. Some package food for delivery; others deliver and serve food. You can serve on the weekday evenings, weekends, for a whole week at a time, or as it works with your schedule. We have opportunities for everyone!
