AIDS Lunch Program

We are currently in our fourteenth year of providing lunches

Shopping for food and service items
Typically two varying members of this terrific team deliver
the sandwiches together, and most don’t drive more often than

Preparing sandwiches on the first Tuesday

Driving to the clinic and serving the prepared lunches on the first Tuesday each month.
Our food pantry is another long-running program at St. Andrew
& St. Charles. For almost 20 years, donations of
food items have been received at the church and distributed
through our food pantry to families and individuals who are
in need. Bags of items are distributed weekly, on Thursday mornings
between 9:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. Food items are donated by Parish members then our group of volunteers shops for
additional needed items, organizes the bags and delivers the bags to the folks
who visit our kitchen.
