The Food Cellar is a year-round, quick response source of emergency aid for whatever situations arise. Donations of non-perishable food are brought to the church and carried to the altar at the Offertory. The Food Cellar maintains a supply of donated food available on an emergency basis to anyone in need. An especially active time for the Food Cellar is the sharing of Holiday Food packages with the needy before Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. In early December, parishioners help prepare Christmas gifts by taking suggestions from the Food Cellar Caring & Sharing Tree and returning the wrapped gifts for delivery by the Food Cellar team.
