FOOD PANTRY COMMITTEE
CONTACT PERSON: Henry Cote

The Sacred Heart Church Food Pantry serves hungry families of Sacred Heart Parish and the surrounding community at all times of the year. Our ministry's mission is to provide food for the needy. All donations of food, cash contributions, and the 120 Club proceeds are combined in supporting this worthwhile ministry.

The Sacred Heart Church Food Pantry is managed by a group of volunteer parishioners who, without compensation of any kind, try to meet the needs of as many individuals as possible.

Volunteers on this committee: 

  • acquire food items from various, identified sources
  • restock the pantry shelves
  • assemble grocery bags for weekly distribution to area residents in need
  • assist in preparing & distributing Thanksgiving and Christmas food baskets
  • attend monthly planning meetings held the 3rd Monday of the month 


Individuals needing support may contact the food pantry at 603-668-4004
