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.


Here’s what to do

  • Pick up a donation bag on the first Sunday of the month. The donation bags are available on the Duval or Grand Patio.
  • Fill the bag with non-perishable items (Please see below for a list of recommended foods.)
  • Bring the filled bag back to St. Monica on the second Sunday of the month, and place it in one of the bins on the Duval or Grand Patio.

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.
