A Choice Pantry
St. Stephen's Food Pantry is a "choice" pantry, which means
that clients do their own shopping, selecting only the items
they will use. Choice honors our clients' dignity and
eliminates the waste of unused items.
The Pantry is looking for substitutes to pick up day-old
bakery items from area stores. It is a 1-hour commitment.
