Food Donations for the MLK Center

The focus for donations in January is breakfast items, particularly cereal and oatmeal.  Ensure is also a good bet for the many senior citizens who use the King Center to supplement their diet.

In the second quarter of the year, St. Mary's has donated 732 lbs. of food to the Martin Luther King Center - and to date, over 1,300 lbs!

Soup Kitchen

St. Mary's turn at the local Soup Kitchen is the second Thursday of every month.  The next date for our turn is January 9th, from 3:30 - 6:00 at St. Paul's Methodist Church, Newport.

Here's what we need in the way of food and supplies:

  • Meatloaves, cooked, wrapped in foil
  • Finger desserts
  • Fruit - oranges, pears, or bananas

We do NOT need Ragu Sauce or apple juice!

We also need YOU - help with setting up, cleaning up and serving - always appreciated.  If you are willing to help or if you have any questions, please email Dave ( ).
