At St. Thomas, we believe that no one should go to bed hungry. The Food Pantry ministry has been in operation for over twenty-five years serving as an outreach initiative to Butler County residents in need. The Food Pantry provides your struggling neighbors with nutritional food. We maintain a supply of nutritional food items for monthly and emergency distribution. Our ministry is funded through food and monetary donations and supplemented from area food drives and the Montgomery Area Food Bank. The Food Pantry is operated by volunteers who are members of St. Thomas and other churches in the area; the food is stored at Saint Thomas Episcopal Church.
We emphasize serving the elderly who find themselves in a position of needing a hand up in feeding their family. Seniors are often an overlooked population. Many on low fixed income struggle to put food on their tables. Recipients are screened to determine their need. The pantry provides food for over 600 individuals each year.
You can help by hosting a food drive, volunteering to work at the pantry, or making a financial contribution. Contact either Father Reid McCormick or Paggie McSpadden, Food Pantry Director at 334-382-7511 for more information.
Thanks to your help, seniors won’t have to choose between medication and food.
I don’t know what your destiny will be, but one thing I know: the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who have sought and found how to serve. – Albert Schweitzer
