Food Bank

Food is distributed on the first and third Thursday each month from 1:0pm to 2:00pm in the auditorium of the original grade school building. The Food Bank is for all families living within the parish lines of Saint Raphael & Messiah Lutheran Churches. You are eligible if you are on a fixed income, are having financial difficulties, or on public assistance.

Saint Raphael Church Food Bank was organized to help supplement the food supply of persons in need within the confines of the parish. The Food Bank is available to those in need, the unemployed, and those on Social Security or Public Assistance. Canned goods and non-perishable food items as well as monetary contributions are accepted throughout the year at St. Raphael Parish Office.

For more information or to find out how you can help, please contact the Parish Office.
