The BACKPACK MINISTRY helps feed children that don’t have enough food to eat on the weekends.  On a weekly basis, students in need are supplied with food items to offer energy and nutrition during the time that they are not in school. Most items can be consumed by a child without adult supervision, while some items could be prepared with the help of an adult. Items needed are:  macaroni & cheese, peanut butter, soup – chicken noodle or tomato, canned vegetables, fruit snacks, canned pasta, fruit, individual applesauce, peaches, pears, fruit cocktail, and pudding. If you would like to donate, place food items in the bins provided at each parish through this weekend, Spetember 22/23.
