Food Weekend/ Food Pantry

We collect food for the St. Gabriel Food Pantry and the Pantry at our sister parish of Good Samaritan the First Saturday/Sunday of the month during the masses. Please bring items for the parishes from the list below to mass or you can drop them by the parish office during office hours. We also welcome financial donations to the pantry that serves fellow parishioners and members of our greater community of Chesterfield. Please bring items from the list below. While all donations are appreciated, only the items on the list are needed, so we kindly ask you to please be sure to check the list before bringing your donation. Also, please be sure to check the expiration dates on the items you are donating. We cannot distribute items with an expired date.
