St. Stephanus partners with many different organizations to bless and be blessed by our Frogtown community. As firm believers that the 1st Article of our Creed as Christians is that God provides for us all, we believe we can acknowledge and support how God is using non-religious organizations to bring His blessing into the lives of people around us, as well as our direct action to share the Good News of life in Jesus with our neighbors.
These groups work to help to fill the gaps of food insecurity in our community.
Basic Needs Drive - Spring 2021
Did you know that Ramsey County has a 10% food insecurity rate? That's about 54,220 people who do not have reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food. We believe that also includes access to basic needs for personal hygiene and household cleaning supplies. During the 2021 Lenten season we will be hosting a drive to create small and large boxes of basic need materials that will be given out during Feeding the Dream giveaways this Spring.
Drop-off individual items or completed boxes (please see packing list below for small and large boxes) at St. Stephanus:

Please no perishable items (frozen foods, fresh fruit, breads, etc.) These go bad too quickly in the warmer months.
Feel free to fill the pantry directly, or if you have a larger donation contact the church office at 651-228-1486 to make an appointment for drop-off.
Coloring books, puzzles, games, storybooks, etc. are great additions to our Free Little Library located next to the pantry.
