We are called to feed the hungry at our door …

SUMMER FOOD DRIVE: June 8 - 9 - the need is great, find out what to bring

St. Mary of the Mills Parish Pantry provides supplemental groceries each week to those facing hunger here in the Laurel community. We rely on the ongoing support of our parishioners to answer the call to feed the hungry at our door. You don’t need to wait for a food drive! Bins are located in the church vestibule to receive donations when you come to Mass and deliveries are also accepted at the parish office. Perhaps you could take a collection from those you work with or your customers, or invite members of your ministry to bring items to your next meeting? We are grateful for all donations and your help in raising awareness for the issue. Items currently most in need include:

Canned meats (tuna, Vienna sausages, SPAM, potted meats, canned chicken)

Meat soups, chili, and beef stew

Pork n’ beans, baked beans

Peanut butter and jelly

Pasta and sauce, canned spaghetti-o’s/ravioli

Canned fruits and vegetables

Instant rice, potatoes, and other sides

Instant oatmeal, cereal, granola bars

Cup of noodles, ramen, and macaroni & cheese

Please remember that we cannot take expired food, open packages, bulk sizes, or glass jars.
