St. Monica sponsors the monthly Loaves & Fishes Food Drive which collects and delivers up to 1000 llbs each month to one of three local food banks (Westside Food Bank, St. Joseph Center Food Bank, or St. Robert Center Weekend-Food Pantry). You can help support this drive by donating non-perishable items on the second Sunday of every month.
If you forget to pick up a donation bag, but have groceries to contribute, no problem! Just place your groceries in the bins and we’ll make sure they get delivered.
