Current Food Pantry Needs

Holy Spirit Verona Food Pantry Shelves

Please help us restock the shelves!  Our current (March 27, 2018) URGENT need items (in order of importance) are:

  • coffee (one pound cans)
  • cereal
  • tissues
  • paper towels
  • laundry detergent (no oversized bottles)

Hope Gardens

We've begun a joint community garden with Holy Innocents, West Orange.  The plan is that some of the produce grown in Hope Gardens will be given out monthly at our Food Pantry.  If you would like to volunteer to help with regular gardening tasks or plan for the expansion, please email Catherine Tamasik.

The Story of our Food Pantry

Our long time dream has become a reality. Led by the Outreach Committee, our congregation has always participated in activities to help those in need, but longed for a way to help those in our community directly.

In May 2015, our parishioner, Cardie Mortimer, generously donated the funds to  renovate our kitchen in honor of his parents, Charles and Elisabeth Mortimer. The kitchen was dedicated in October and now includes a food pantry to store goods for those in need.

Food Pantry Committee Meeting

Sunday, May 6

Our Loaves & Fishes (L&F) Committee will meet on Sunday, May 6 after Coffee Hour (11:45am-ish) to discuss our progress and tasks moving forward.

Please gather in the kitchen on the lower level around 11:45am to help build up this life-giving Holy Spirit Verona ministry.
