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.
One of the biggest hurdles our community faces today is food insecurity. We are grateful to be able to partner with Second Harvest Heartland to keep food distributions happening year round. We are currently doing distributions on the 4th Tuesday of the month.
Each month we have two opportunities for you to help with distribution! The first is join us for our packing day to put together the Shelf Stable Boxes - watch our Facebook Page for that event infor.
The second way you can help is by helping at the food distribution. We need volunteers each month to help with packing, distributing, and intake! You can sign up for that here!
Want to bring a group to either? Let's chat! Email Megan Hoffman at firstname.lastname@example.org
Donation items: (During the winter months please take care not to drop off items that will freeze - these will explode and create a mess and ruin other foods in the box)
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.
