The Story of our Food Pantry

Our long time dream has become a reality. Led by the Outreach Committee, our congregation has always participated in activities to help those in need, but longed for a way to help those in our community directly.

In May 2015, our parishioner, Cardie Mortimer, generously donated the funds to  renovate our kitchen in honor of his parents, Charles and Elisabeth Mortimer. The kitchen was dedicated in October and now includes a food pantry to store goods for those in need.

Lent Food Drive Box 2022 - Two Fliers

These two fliers can be printed on purple paper and taped to your Lent Box as a reminder to collect 40 items over the 40 days of Lent for the Holy Spirit Verona Food Pantry.  Thanks for participating!

"Lent: 40 Days, 40 Items" Food Drive

Do something special this Lent: help fight hunger one day at a time!  Place one non-perishable food or toiletry item into a box each day during Lent (40 days = 40 items).  Return the box and its contents to Holy Spirit Verona by Palm Sunday, April 10.  If you would like to pick up a box, email us to make arrangements, or download two flyers to make your own box.
