40 Cans for 40 Days Lenten Food Drive
Thank you to the Knights and to everyone who has been donating to our Lenten Food Drive. The food the Knights of Columbus collects each Sunday goes to the St. Francis Food Pantry, and more specifically, the Easter food baskets. During the past 2 years, this food drive has been a tremendous help, allowing us to fill over 40 Easter baskets while also restocking our pantry after the busy Lenten season.
While we will still have Easter food sign ups in the narthex for perishables (meat, milk, butter, eggs), we will not need to have sign ups in the narthex for nonperishables because of the support we receive from 40 Cans for 40 days.
Below is the schedule for the type of food we are collecting each week. However, we are more than happy to take items past its completion date and will accept any food items throughout Lent. Thank you for your support!

March 15: Pancake mix/syrup or Cake mix/frosting
March 22: Canned fruit and vegetables
