The Society of St. Vincent de Paul greatly appreciates your support. Through your generous donations of food and monetary contributions we have been able to help those in need within the community and our St. Jude parish. During the first six months of 2021, the food pantry was able to provide food supplies for 689 families (3,101 people). During the school year, in conjunction with Common Ground’s Backpack Program we provided weekend meals for 63 designated MISD students. We are currently participating in the summer’s Feed the Kids Program in which weekly bags of food (each with 7-8 meals) are provided to eligible MISD students. Also, in the first six months of 2021, SVdP served 99 families (289 people) in need of financial assistance with their utility bills.
An Invitation to Serve: We extend an invitation to you to serve those in need by volunteering in the food pantry on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 9:00 – 11:00 A.M. Also, the food pantry is in need of pickup trucks/drivers to procure food supplies on Monday and Friday mornings. The SVdP financial aid program is in need of volunteers to participate in home visitations. If you are interested in serving people in need, please contact us at [email protected] or visit us at the Food Pantry on Wednesdays or Saturdays. Again, thank you for your support and generous contributions.
How to Contribute to the SVdP Ministry: Please write checks to SVdP – St. Jude Food Pantry and either mail it to SVdP – St. Jude Food Pantry, 500 E.

The food pantry is located across the street from the new church and is open on Wednesday or Saturday mornings from 9:00 – 11:00 a.m. During the COVID pandemic, we have a drive-through service during our hours of operation. Thank you for your contributions.
Thanksgiving Food Boxes for Families in Need.
The Saint Vincent de Paul Conference of the St. Jude Parish will distribute Thanksgiving food boxes to families in need again this year on November 20th . Your assistance is needed in order to have all the food items necessary to fill each box. The Society of the SVdP depends on your generosity to provide assistance to those in need and we ask for your assistance with these Thanksgiving box food donations. The following items are needed: cans of green beans, corn, sweet potatoes, cream of mushroom soup, cranberry sauce, French fried onions, turkeygravy, chicken broth, pie filling; and also bags of stuffing-dressing mix and boxes of cornbread mix. Frozen turkeys, pie crusts and bread rolls will also be accepted, but due to limited fridge space we ask for you to consider making a donation for these specific items and our SVdP staff will buy them the day before the Turkey boxes are distributed. You may place any of these non-perishable food items in the grocery carts in the narthex of the St. Jude Church or deliver them to the St. Jude Food Pantry on Wednesday and Saturday mornings from 9:00 – 11:00 A.M. via the drive-through service. The SVdP St. Jude Conference greatly appreciates your continued concern and support in ministering to the poor and needy especially during the COVID-19 concern. God Bless!
