St. Stephen's Food Bank (Phx) reminder 2/22/23

Brrr and a chance of rain. Yet, St. Stephen's food bank will be open and it is delivery day!

We are located at 2310 N. 56th Street (and E. Oak) in Phoenix behind the Papago Buttes. A photo identification is required by DES. Families receive a food box, meat, dairy, veggies and produce. Delivery day is the best day to come if you know of anyone who could use this service. Hours are 9a to 11:50.

It will be a cold day for us desert rats so please layer your clothes as sometimes there is a short wait depending on how many people are there. (It's the mom in me that is issuing this request.)

Tissue box, please.

May we all face our last days with the same humility, grace and courage as Pres. Carter.

Pres. Carter followed this verse:

Micah 6:8
The Message
8 But he’s already made it plain how to live, what to do,
what God is looking for in men and women.
It’s quite simple: Do what is fair and just to your neighbor,
be compassionate and loyal in your love,
And don’t take yourself too seriously—
take God seriously.

Thank you for sharing

your talents with us. This brought a grin.

Thank you, Sen. Warnock

God is surely walking with the Carter family at this time.

Food bank at St. Stephen's Phoenix reminder

2310 N. 56th Street in Phoenix. We are located by the Papago Buttes for those not familiar with the area and are between East Oak and East Thomas. Hours are 9a to noon.

You will need photo identification. If you know anyone who need help this is a good way to get food. Besides the box (2 boxes if the family is 8 or more) families also receive meat, dairy and veggies. This is delivery day which means there could be lots of goodies. We have volunteers who go to St. Mary's once a week to shopping for produce, milk and other items.

If you would like to help we could use help with pet food.
