SVDP Food Pantry
Currently there are St. Vincent de Paul conferences at each of the 3 parishes in the cluster. Both St. Als and IHM St. Vincent de Paul conferences operate food pantries, As of January 1, 2017 the MQH SVDP has permanently closed just its food pantry. However, they are still in need of money donations through the year to continue the mission to help the poor and those in need. IHM's Food Pantry is also supported by Hunger Task Force because of the large number of people served. Each parish serves residents within their parish boundaries, as defined by the main office of SVDP.
- The St. Aloysius Food Pantry is open on the 4th Wednesday each month, from 9:00am until 11:00am. The pantry is hosted in the parish hall named for their patron saint, St. Aloysius Gonzaga, which is located adjacent to the main parking lot at the south end of the parish campus.
- The Immaculate Heart of Mary Food Pantry is located in a separate building at the southwest corner of the church parking lot (1212 S. 117 St.). They are open every Saturday 9:30-11:30 a.m. and the last Wednesday of the month from 6-7:30 pm. All other Wednesdays they are open 9:00-11:00 a.m.
Those requesting assistance present a photo ID and a piece of current mail, confirming they reside within the parish boundaries. The food pantries are an emergency resource, intended to aid the recipient(s) for just a couple of days.
