The St. James Conference of the St. Vincent de Paul Society provides emergency help to individuals and families, especially food from the parish pantry, and through the J.O.I.N. office of the Diocese helps with other emergencies. This work is accomplished by parish members with the material and financial aid of the parish and several neighboring parishes. Members are needed to help with the pantry and for other important work. If you are interested, leave your name and number at the parish office and you will be contacted.
The food pantry is one of the many services to the community that St. Vincent De Paul provides to those in need. The service is provided to those residing in the 43224 zip code and all parishioners. All receiving this assistance must go through Hands On Central Ohio or J.O.I.N (Joint Organizatin for Inner City Needs). Food is donated by many SJL parish members and surrounding parishes. Some food is purchased through the Mid-Ohio Food Bank.
Food Pantry Hours are from 6 PM to 7 PM The food pantry is always looking for volunteers to help with this worthwhile cause. It is a very rewarding service opportunity. The hours volunteers are needed to distribute the food are Monday through Friday from 5:45 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Any amount of time you can offer is appreciated. If you have any questions or would like to contribute in any way, please contact St. Vincent De Paul at 614 447-1074.
