Thank you for keeping the St. John Food Pantry in prayer during this third week of Easter. Please pray the Lord's Prayer for the St. John Food Pantry during the week of April 19th.
The St. John Food Pantry served almost 9,000 individuals during 2014. The majority of the pantry's referrals come through HandsOn Central Ohio and JOIN. The pantry receives food through the Mid-Ohio Food Bank and from church and organization food drives.
Food drives are important to the St. John Food Pantry, because they allow us to spend less at the Mid-Ohio Food Bank. The St. John Food Pantry is a ministry of Holy Rosary/St. John Church, and the pantry budget is almost 7% of our entire church budget, which is a huge commitment for our small parish. For that reason, food drives on the part of other churches and organizations are such a blessing to us, and are needed all year (and especially in the summer when donations tend to be down).
Would you like to help the pantry with a food drive? Please call (614) 252-5926, ext. 7 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you, your church, school, business or organization would like more information.
Below is a prayer from Caritas that we can all pray about hunger. Please pray it as well this week for the St. John Food Pantry and all those who are hungry in our neighborhood and beyond.
