Immaculate Conception
Food Pantry

IC Food Pantry's goal is to serve both the parish community and the Belmont neighborhood.

Below are three ways in which IC food pantry continues to serve!

Please see below if you are in need of assistance or if you wish to serve.

Your continued support, both financially and through volunteering, will allow this ministry to flourish.
Please designate financial contributions "Food Pantry."

IC partners with BOGG. BOGG Ministries is a non-profit organization that provides food, clothing, and other essentials to those in need. Their primary ministry is the Mobile Meals program. The Mobile Meals program comes to IC's South Parking lot on the third Thursday of each month. It provides, for example, a family of three with 3 meals a day for 3-5 days. IC sponsors the Mobile Meals program at our location by using the donation from the monthly IC Food pantry envelopes.

Immaculate Conception School Blessing Bag Program

To volunteer please see below.

The ICS Blessing Bag program provides assistance to students who need supplemental nutrition during the weekends. Each year, parents have the option to sign their student up to participate in the program. Blessing Bags are given each weekend throughout the school year. Each bag contains breakfast, fruit, lunch, a snack & juice for the weekend.

Immaculate Conception Food Pantry

To volunteer please see below.

The food pantry provides grocery boxes for registered members of the parish and IC school families. IC Food Pantry will work with the family advocate at IC School to help families. As this ministry is more targeted, the Food Pantry will have a curated list of food items for distribution and will communicate the greatest needs with the wider church community through the weekly Bulletin. Please see below for a standard stock list of donatable items or see the bulletin for our items of greatest need.

The Food Pantry's Grocery Boxes comes in two varieties:

  1. Starter Box - A starter box gives the family the staples needed for making complete meals. A starter box will be given to each family with their first visit to the pantry.

  2. Grocery Box - These come in 2 sizes, large & small. A large box feeds a family while a small box feeds a single person or couple. These boxes provide the necessary items to make meals for 7 days. The dry, canned & boxed food items will be packed in the box for distribution. Meat will be frozen upon arrival and sorted in the freezer for distribution by different color bags in crates or trays in the freezer. All families will receive a meat allotment, milk, eggs, bread & grocery box based on their family size.
