“Reducing hunger with healthy food, dignity and respect.”
In his book, Utopia, St. Thomas More argued the need for social justice on a whole range of issues, in opposition to the forces of a world obsessed with wealth, pleasure, power and prestige. The mission of the STM Twelve Baskets Food Pantry is to provide healthy, nutritious food to persons suffering food insecurity while treating all who come through our door with dignity and respect.
Twelve Baskets Food Pantry is open every Wednesday 3:00pm to 6:00pm.
With our partnership with All Faiths Food Bank and the generous donations of our parishioners, we continue to serve hundreds of families in our community. Our pantry is stocked with non-perishable goods, as well as fresh and frozen meats, eggs, cheese, and fresh vegetables. Please watch for the list of requested items in the weekly bulletin and bring them to the Church or the Chelsea Center. Cash donations allow us to buy perishable items such as eggs and meat. Please write "Food Pantry" on your check or envelope so that your donation is allocated correctly to the Food Pantry.
