In collaboration with the Cathedral Outreach program, Friends of Cathedral Music is offering a $5 reduction on their concert ticket to anyone who brings one or more of the items listed below to any of the Lenten Series Concerts. Please note that if you wish to bring more than one item, the Food Pantry will be very grateful for your generosity.
The Food pantry is an outreach of the Cathedral of St. John and has been for many years. It has taken many shapes since its inception. Its most recent and successful shape is the grocery store model. In this model families have the freedom and dignity to choose what they need. We have also limited the scope to the neighborhood immediately surrounding the Cathedral, so as to better serve those in need in our back yard. Our food pantry’s group of dedicated volunteers currently serves about 90 families and 350 individuals per month.
Most of the families we serve are the working poor, those who live on the fringe of homelessness and need some extra help to get by. Your donation will go a long way to making sure that one such family has food enough to put on the table. Our most expensive items in order of cost are:
1. Canned meat entrees (Ravioli, Spaghetti and meat, Chili con Carne, etc.)
2. Canned fruit
3. Canned soup
5. Peanut butter
6. Sugar or flour
