Food Pantry

The Customer-Choice Food Pantry provides groceries to low-income families in a shopping-style environment.  We also distribute women’s and children’s clothing and household linens, and provide assistance with benefit programs. 

The Emergency Food Pantry provides pre-packaged bags of groceries during the week via the reception desk of the Church of St. Francis Xavier.
