Are you looking for an opportunity to volunteer some of your time? Why not volunteer hours at our community food pantry? There are seven churches in our community that regularly serve at the Food Pantry. Hence, every seven weeks Grace Lutheran serves Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 10 am till 2 pm.
During this time: we complete registration forms on the computer, bag groceries, restock shelves, share information about additional resources in the community, share a smile and give a comforting, reassuring word with families that are experiencing a difficult time in their lives.
If you would like to spend time volunteering, I encourage you to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity. We require a total of five people for each scheduled day; however, there is plenty of work to be done, hence, please volunteer. Contact Candi today at 407-891-8737.
Saturday May 13th the “Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive” sponsored by the United States Postal Service occurred. Many volunteers came out that day to receive food items, check expiration dates, sort and store the food brought in by the postal workers. All food collected in St Cloud stayed in St Cloud and was donated to the St Cloud Community Pantry. More than 13k pounds of food was collected that day!! Thank you St Cloud residents.

schools in just a few weeks, St. Cloud Cares anticipates 350 Care
Paks. These CarPaks will be needed by local elementary school
When gathering your items please “pass on the glass”. Glass
containers may break before they make it home. Also, look at the best
buy or expiration dates and make sure they are older than December 2017.
Anything prior to these dates we will not be able to use the food or pass it
along to other food distribution agencies. Thank You for your continued
support!! It is needed by so many children.
