Now more than ever in these uncertain times, we need to come together as a church community to help others. Please prayerfully consider these opportunities:
Food Items for the Unsheltered
Breaking Bread with the Hungry prepares and provides 15 grocery bags per week that are distributed to those living unsheltered who seek food assistance from St. Vincent de Paul Church in Baltimore City. We are in need of some very specific food donations. Please review the available slots below and click on the button to sign up. All items should be brought to the kitchen at Our Lady of the Fields parish by the Sunday prior to the first Friday of each month or to the 4th Friday dinner at St. Vincent de Paul. Reminder emails will be sent to you in advance of those dates. If you wish to make a monetary donation to cover the purchase of the item you sign up for, please indicate that in your sign-up (or email Ellen Draper). If you have any questions, please contact Ellen Draper at email@example.com. Thank you in advance for your continued support for our sisters and brothers in need.

For a few months now, we have been providing special bags of groceries each week to the food pantry at St. Vincent de Paul. These bags are distributed by the outreach staff at St. Vincent’s to people living unsheltered who come to the church seeking food. The food we provide is shelf-stable and has pull-tab tops for ease of use. The feedback we have received so far has been very positive. We currently find ourselves in need of a few food items for this project. Specifically, we need canned meals with pull-tab tops, such as beef stew/chili/soup/or Chef-Boy-Ar-Dee, and individual size boxes or cups of cereal. If you, or any of your friends or neighbors, can provide some of the needed food items or a monthly cash donation to cover the purchase of the food items, please sign up using this Sign-Up Genius link:
Thank you for your continued kindness, generosity, and your continued support. Suffering is widespread in this difficult time, particularly among the poor and unsheltered. If you are able, please continue to support our efforts to reach out to those in need and keep praying every day.
