How to Donate Food for Harvest Sunday

What is Harvest Sunday?

This food drive enables St. Thomas and two other food pantries to supply food to those in need. As a result of the pandemic, pantries are in greater need this year.

The St. Thomas Challenge

The pandemic has increased the number of “food challenged” families. The pandemic has made it more challenging to gather food donations for our Care Pantry and other pantries. The St. Thomas Challenge is for every St. Thomas family, if they are able, to make a Harvest Sunday food donation.

St. Thomas Miracle

The miracle of the loaves and fishes fed 5,000 men, women, and children. One interpretation of that miracle is that the words of Jesus inspired those in the crowd that had brought food to share it with others that had no food. Let us pray for that same inspiration and grace such that we create a St. Thomas Harvest Sunday miracle. Amen!

We can also use plenty of volunteers. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN VOLUNTEERING, CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP.
