The Saint Michael Parish Family Kitchen, Food Pantry and family closet is dedicated to providing a meal, food and clothing to those in need. Our objective is to operate a program that promotes love, dignity and respect for those we serve. To carry on the work of the Gospel, service to God, to feed those that are hungry and cloth those that are naked.

We believe every human should be treated with dignity and respect, we will treat all people that eat at the Soup Kitchen as our guests and anyone is welcome at our table. All our volunteers are a very valued asset and all are essential to our success. We strive to ensure every volunteer and guest has a positive experience and safe environment for the time they spend with us. Everything we do is done to carry forth our love for God and recognize every person is God’s creation and will serve without discrimination.

We ask you to continue to help us supplement our food supply by bringing non-perishable food items when you come to Mass on the weekend, and dropping them off in the receptacle in the gathering space of the church. Items needed are canned goods (pop tops are helpful), peanut butter, jelly, cereal, granola bars, tuna fish and soup. Also, toiletries such as, toilet paper, shampoo, soap, toothbrushes and toothpaste, are needed as well. Please help us continue this important cause.
