Mini Food Pantry

There is an ongoing need for donations to St. Gertrude’s Little Food Pantry.

Parishioners of both St. Gertrude and St. Ann churches are invited to join in the mission to maintain the pantry for people in need.

Located on the parking lot between the St. Gertrude rectory and the cemetery, the pantry is free and open to all, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The slogan is: “Take What You Need; Leave What You Can.”

All types of non-perishable food, especially protein, are needed. No glass bottles or jars. Personal hygiene items also are needed.

Please help if you can by dropping off items at the pantry. If the pantry is full, please leave items at the rectory and they will be picked up and stored for use later.

Thank you for your help.
