Who Does St. George's Food Pantry Serve?

Love the poor, and through them you will find mercy.

~St Isaac of Syria

Unlike many food ministries elsewhere, who primarily serve the needs of the homeless population, St. George’s Food Pantry recipients are generally families, often very recent immigrants, unemployed or underemployed, who need some help making ends meet and in starting their new life in this country.

We pray that you & your Parish

will become St. George's Food Pantry Partners,

Patrons & Friends!

"What will you do if your product still further increases next year? You should then destroy again the warehouses which you are now preparing to build, and build bigger. For the reason why God has given you fruitful harvests is that He might either overcome your avarice or condemn it; wherefore you can have no excuse. But you keep for yourself what He wished to be produced through you for the benefit of many -- nay, rather, you rob even yourself of it, since you would better preserve it for yourself if you distributed it to others."

-- St. Ambrose of Milan (339-397)

Description of Food Pantry Participants

Description of Food Pantry Participants
 

Many of the Food Pantry clients are families. This often means large and extended families, which include both young children and the elderly. A number of those we serve are handicapped or retirees. Some participants are unemployed; many more are simply under-employed, due to lack of job or language skills and the financially depressed economy in this border region. Unlike many food ministries elsewhere, who primarily serve the homeless population, most of St. George’s Food Pantry recipients are generally families, often very recent immigrants, who need a hand to help make ends meet while starting their new life in this country. Nearly all of St. George’s Food Pantry participants speak Spanish, and most know very little English. Each time the Food Pantry opens its doors, it serves between 50 and 60 families - including quite a large number of children.

 

¡Gloria a Dios por todo!
