Casserole Ministry for August

Photo: Jimmy Barnhardt at Holy Spirit receiving and organizing food donations

As more families are going back to work, the casserole ministry is adjusting to meet the current needs in our community. In an attempt to streamline this multiphase process, Holy Trinity is being asked to provide beef-based casseroles/dishes ONLY (beef stew, beef stir-fry, meatloaf and rice, etc.) and trays of cooked vegetables. St. Francis and St. Andrew's will be providing chicken-based and pasta dishes as well as cooked vegetables. Please note this important change. Click here to learn more or to sign up.

if you would like to contribute in a way that does not require cooking, there is an ongoing need for non-prepared food and supplies, including:
  • dried beans
  • rice
  • pasta and pasta sauce
  • canned veggies, tuna, chicken
  • fruit cups, applesauce cups
  • diapers size 5 & 6
  • baby wipes
Drop off these items on Tuesday, August 17  from 12:15 to 12:45 p.m. in the back parking lot (someone will be there to receive them).
