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 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 receive bags of food twice/month on Sunday afternoons.
The pantry was started in 2012 under the supervision of the Ven. Carolyn Bolton, deacon of St. Paul’s, and continues as a program of St. Paul's. It serves 60-70 clients bimonthly, with approximately 3,900 bags of groceries per year.
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 donations and grants from the Alameda Deanery and St. Paul’s Episcopal Church and School, and other generous individuals.
