Food Pantry

The St. Bernadette Food Pantry runs yearlong to help serve the local needy.  We accept perishable and non-perishable food items.

St. Bernadette Parish runs three (3) large food drives each year.

  • Thanksgiving
  • Christmas
  • Easter

These campaigns supply enough goods for those holiday recipients and also serve to stock the pantry shelves.  At those times of the year, students in the parish in grades 6, 7 and 8, participate in stocking the shelves and other duties.  Holiday deliveries are also put together by the Service Team.

We always look for help with stocking the cupboard, deliveries, home visits and sometimes people to mentor.

We occasionally take in furniture and large household items to meet an immediate need.

Our goal is to serve the personal and spiritual needs of individuals and families.
