Feeding With Faith

For some kids, meals provided at school are the only meals of the day.  St. Thomas More has committed to  provide 60 children with a supplemental food bag each weekend.

STM has partnered with local Heritage Elementary School to identify children in need of food.  At Heritage 69% of the students qualify for free or reduced lunch.

The food items are obtained through parish donations and collection days at local grocery stores.  We also use some funds from our monthly social ministry/outreach collection to buy food items.

Each week on Wednesday mornings volunteers pack up 60 food bags with items such as mac & cheese, instant oatmeal, canned pasta, fruit cups, pudding cups, granola bars, peanut butter and tuna lunch kits.  The food bags are delivered to Heritage and they are distributed to the kids to take home on Friday afternoons.
