Description of Ministry – Loaves & Fishes is a long-standing outreach at St Teresa’s to help the local needy. We maintain a food pantry in the basement of the church and stock non-perishable food items for weekly distribution to approximately 50 local families. The food comes from donations from our parishioners as well as the many local food drives that take place throughout the year. Volunteers are needed on an ongoing basis to pack the bags of food, distribute the bags, oversee the pantry, stock the pantry, and qualify the patrons.  We also run two large food drives at Thanksgiving and Christmas to feed over 400 area families.  Volunteers are needed to pack and distribute turkeys and bags of food.  Volunteers needed on a weekly basis.
