About The Food Pantry
The St. Cletus Food Pantry distributes non-perishable groceries from the vestibule of the Church every Thursday of the month from 6:00 – 8:00 PM. Each month we distribute to 150-250+ families of the working poor, who live in our community.
Some months we have special offerings for our clients, which in the past have included fresh produce, school supplies, cleaning supplies, laundry supplies, bread, books, Easter baskets, and grocery store vouchers for perishable items.
Our regular registered Food Pantry families benefit from the Giving Tree, our annual Advent parish outreach. Each family receives Christmas gifts and a special food basket.
