Loaves & Fishes Ministry – Food Pantry

Oprima para leer en Español: Despensa de Alimentos

Thank you for your interest in the Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry supporting families in our community who are experiencing food scarcity and insecurity. Inspired by the miracle of the multiplication of loaves by Jesus in the Gospels, our Loaves and Fishes Ministry partners with NourishLA to collect and distribute food to families and individuals in need.

Thanksgiving Food Collection

We are collecting non-perishable items and gift cards to be distributed during a special Thanksgiving Food Pantry. Items can be brought to the Parish office from Nov 9th to 20th, Monday to Friday from 9am to 3pm or drop off after each Sunday mass. Thanks for helping local families in need!
