Help Feed the Hungry at Riverwest Pantry

St. Robert has started a new ministry – serving the hungry at Riverwest Food Pantry, located at St. Casmir Parish. 

Hunger drives over 11,000 people to Riverwest Food Pantry each year. 

•            One-third are children

•            One-fourth are elderly or disabled persons on a fixed income.

•            Others are hard working families (39%) who make a difficult decision

              between paying for food or paying the rent. 

•            Twenty percent of households have members who served in the military.

Riverwest Pantry Mission

The Pantry’s mission is “We come together around food to relieve hunger, improve lives and grow community well-being.”

Riverwest is a choice pantry which means clients choose which proteins, fruits and vegetables they prefer on 8 different food carts.  It also provides fresh fruit and vegetables, dairy products and meat.  Breakfast is offered and food distribution begins with prayer as Jesus did before distributing the loaves and fishes to the hungry. 

The pantry is run by Vincent Noth, a dedicated Catholic leader who has worked with our youth ministry program, inspiring them and others.  Vincent has innovative plans not just to relieve hunger but also to help clients move out of poverty.

You Can Help

The Pantry needs 14-18 people to help clients with registration, grocery selection, carrying bags, serving snacks, and clean up. Volunteers sign-in at 8 am where they receive their morning assignment and hands-on training. The doors open for guests at 8:15 am and close at 10:30 am.  Volunteers stay for cleanup. 

This a great volunteer opportunity for families to participate in together!
