Boulevard Place Food Pantry: The St. Vincent de Paul food pantry, located at the intersection of 42nd St. and Boulevard Place, provides emergency food for those in need. A family representative may come once a month to receive between 18 – 30 items of food or personal items depending on family size. Clients are offered a choice of items, not a prepacked order. In order to receive food, clients must present a picture ID and a piece of mail mailed to their home in the last three months, and live within the boundaries of the 5 contributing parishes (STA, St. Luke, St. Joan of Arc, Christ the King and Immaculate Heart of Mary).
Hours of operation are:
Monday – 8:30 am -10:30 am and 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
Tuesday – 8:30 am -10:30 am and 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm
Wednesday – 8:30 am -10:30 am and 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

Volunteers are an important part of this ministry, staffing the pantry when open, stocking shelves, transporting food donations from Gleaners and Second Helpings, keeping accurate records, and cleaning and removing trash.
During the summer 2012 the Food Pantry will be moving to a new location on the NW corner of 42nd St. and Boulevard Place. A successful fundraising campaign and many generous in-kind donations have allow the purchase and renovation of the building there to a much more client and volunteer friendly facility. You can download a brochure about the new pantry here (five parish food pantry SVDP). If you are interested in volunteering at the Food Pantry either in its current location or in the new building (which will need many more volunteers doing many different jobs) please contact our program leader.
