Leadership and Coordination

For a first time visitor to the pantry, each Thursday's food distribution may seem to flow almost effortlessly, but in fact, our volunteers gather well before the pantry opens to prepare for and coordinate the day's tasks. Key to this coordination is the leadership and guidance provided by Stacie Hallal . Each volunteer looks to Stacie for direction and clarification as the pantry gets underway, and Stacie, seen in several of the photos below from last week, is always quick with a resolution that invariable works. Thank you Stacie.

Care, Respect and Conversation

On Thursday morning each week when the food pantry is in operation the hall downstairs at Saint Anthony's is transformed into a community of care, respect and conversation. Our volunteers, our pantry visitors and our generous donors together make this happen. It makes a difference in many lives and last week as food was distributed for Easter meals was a true joy to see.
