Thank you St. Luke's parishioners for your continued support of the Food Pantry, both in requested grocery items and through your financial support.
Your generosity has been heartwarming!

Here is a little update to keep you informed of what is going on.

This week we supplied food to 78 individuals.
We extend great gratitude for your kind hearts.

Attached is a “Much Needed List of Food Items”. These needed items will greatly assist the Food Pantry
in offering complete meals made from different combinations of all the items.
List of Most Needed Food Items
Immediate needs include
Soups (variety), Spaghetti Sauce, Tuna helper, Cereal

If so inclined you are welcome to pick up a few of these items while out shopping for yourselves and
bring your food items to the church on any Thursday between 1:00 and 3:00pm  
For those who are not shopping but would like to give a monetary donation,
you can mail your check to St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, with “Food Pantry” written in the memo section. These funds will be placed in a separate account for the Food Pantry and used as needed. 
A third opportunity is to keep the Food Pantry clients and each other in your prayers
for peace and well-being.

Father Pierre-Henry does remind everyone that St. Luke’s remains under complete lock down at this time.  Please  do not  bring items on any other day or time than what is listed above, as no one will be available to bring them inside .

Please continue to pray for the needs of our community; for those experiencing food insufficiency, for those seeking medical assistance, and for those needing housing.  
Stay safe and take good care of yourselves and each other.  St. Luke's Food Pantry
Many of you have asked "how can I support St. Luke's
during this difficult time?"

The second is to check on each other through phone calls, emails, text messages, etc.
Thirdly, at this time we need your financial support.
Pledges and plate offerings can be kept up to date by online giving click here for a one time or recurring donation.
You can also mail your offering, or if you just need to get out of the house,
