Parish Outreach to St. John Foodbank

Parish Outreach to  St. John Foodbank

Parish Outreach Food Bank Project   Our Church has been invited to join with other parishes in the Diocese to help fill the shelves of the St. John the Divine Food Bank Program which provides food to many families.  The parish Outreach Committee will manage this project, and in order to be successful, donations are needed from you.   Here is how the project works.  Each month we ask you to provide a specific item for the Food Bank that are 'special treat' foods as identified by the St. John the Divine Food Bank team.  Baskets for food will be placed in our Church entrance and in the Hall beginning next week in order for you to deposit the items at your convenience.    The item to be collected for January is CEREAL, and since Country Grocer is so generous to the Esquimalt Community including our parish, it would be a gesture of good will to support Country Grocer. (Your receipt tape is also greatly appreciated, too).   Let's get on the band wagon and help make this Food Bank project a success!
