Our food pantry provides households with enough food for up to three days. We take into consideration restrictions clients may have on what they can eat or prepare, including health conditions, access to cooking facilities and special foods for children. We do not have any residency restrictions but do ask that each client show a valid ID. Households are eligible for assistance once every 30 days.
We are open Monday – Thursday from 9 am to 2 pm. Clients must arrive by 1:45 pm to allow time for processing and packing.
How St. Columba’s Food Pantry & special programs help families:

Robert worked hard his entire life. Together, he and his wife could support their two kids. Then the pandemic hit. The restaurant where he worked closed and he lost his job. Robert and his wife spent through their savings and were having trouble making ends meet. Right before Christmas, he made one of the hardest decisions of his life, he came to our Food Pantry to ask for help. We were able to provide him with a Christmas food basket for his family and surprised him with gift cards to purchase other necessities and gifts for his kids. He thanked us repeatedly and tearfully said he would be able to provide his kids with Christmas because of St. Columba.
