We have been receiving families in need of food each week, but only about 4-6 families per week. So, it has been a little slow but has allowed for efficient management.
If you know those who are in need please contact the parish office so that we can assist them. This is an outreach for the entire San Marcos Community. We are all in this together and lend a helping hand to others.
As you all may remember, the EFDN offers two programs, home delivery and drive-thru pantry; St. Mark’s is participating with the home delivery service. (The reason I opted out of the Drive-Thru pantry program, is due to the fact that families would need to request drive thru, schedule an appointment on one of two days we would determine as ‘pick up days’ and to operate those pick up days requires quite a bit of prep and several volunteers twice a week; we aren’t receiving the volume of requests to support the amount of effort required for the drive-thru.)
Since March, St. Mark’s has distributed 345
food packages which includes providing some food packages to other parishes to help out their programs.
1 Driver for Monday, July 13th to meet at Cathedral Catholic High School at 10am to pick up food items and bring back to St. Mark’s Pantry
3 Packing Assistant volunteers for Monday July 13th 5pm-6:30pm to put the food items into bags to make up 100 food ‘packages’
Please let me know if you can help out; can reply via email or text me at: 760 525 7678
