Who we are
We are an outreach ministry of St. Therese Church in the Parkville, MO area providing assistance since 1961.

100% of our funding comes from generous donors from our community.
We are an all volunteer ministry with 99% of the donations going towards client assistance.
We are good stewards of your donations.
92.5% of our purchased food comes from Harvesters at a cost of 16 cents per pound to cover handling
Thousands of pounds of food are donated by individuals, and Northland grocery stores and businesses
Clients are visited in their home before financial assistance is offered
We also organize the Christmas Adopt-a-family outreach for our clients. Parishioners volunteer to provide gifts for children in the household.
