St. Paul's provides groceries to our neighbors twice/month through the work of our Food Pantry, as well as seasonal outreach for Thanksgiving and Christmas. We are only able to continue this work because of your financial gifts and volunteer time. Thank you for all the work you do to donate to the effort! Please reach out to Archdeacon Carolyn Bolton or Father Mauricio if you would like to volunteer.
St. Paul’s Pantry of Hope provides groceries to families, seniors and others in the community who have access to cooking facilities but who have a difficult time affording wholesome nutritious food throughout the month. Pantry clients visit the pantry on Sunday afternoons.
The pantry was started in 2012 under the supervision of the Ven. Carolyn Bolton, deacon of St. Paul’s and Alameda Country senior resource director for Episcopal Senior Resources. A collaborative project of St. Paul’s Church, Episcopal Senior Resources and the Alameda Country Food Bank, it serves 60 to 80 individuals each week.
The pantry is staffed mostly by volunteers from St. Paul’s Church. Much of the food is purchased from the Alameda County Food Bank with funds from Episcopal Senior Communities, donations and grants from the Alameda Deanery and St. Paul’s Episcopal School. The pantry is always happy to accept non-perishable foods and financial donations.
