We as a Christian community are dedicated to helping those in need. We provide food assistance with dignity, giving clients a choice in selecting their own food.

Agencies served: St. Matthew parishioners, Catholic Charities Charlotte Diocese, and several smaller local food pantries.

Volunteer Opportunities

Non-perishable food collections are conducted on the first Sunday of every month. Volunteers help sort and shelve donated food items. The pantry has space limitations so no more than 10-12 volunteers are needed at one time. Entire families are invited to help make Christmas Food Baskets in the Parish Center.

Time Commitment

Once a month; Mondays, 9 to 10 am after collection Sundays. Also at Thanksgiving, Easter, and Christmas to make baskets.
