Our Food Program is counting on volunteers to offer food assistance to those in need. There are many ways to volunteer for this program:
Our food pantry is a fully stocked mini grocery store staffed by Parish volunteers between the hours of 9:00am and 12:00pm each Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The merchandise varies, but it includes a range of canned goods, cereals, diapers, fresh vegetables and meat. Our volunteers commit to one or two mornings a month. For more information, please contact Glorivel, 281.497.4434.
Our volunteer gardeners plant and harvest vegetables for pantry. Commitment: Weekday mornings or Saturdays, Fall and Spring. For more information, please contact John, 713.301.4303.
Keep our coupon basket stocked with money saving coupons to help families on a limited budget. Flexible schedules are available for coupon clipper volunteers. For more information, please contact Deborah, 281.497.4434.
Food Drive Volunteers help us collect food for the pantry after Mass. Food Drives are typically held on the fourth Sunday of each month. For more information, please contact Sandy.
Donations and Virtual Shopping:
Other tangible ways in which you can support our efforts to help those in need include grocery store gift cards ($20-$25 suggested) or purchasing items on Amazon from our Food Pantry Wish List. This way, the items are delivered directly to SJV!
We are thankful for your generosity! If you are planning a large donation or food collection through a school or another organization, however, we’d like to request that you contact our office ahead of time (at least one week in advance) so that we can be ready for it. Please contact our office or call us at 281.497.4434
Our Social Ministry’s emergency assistance service hours are Monday, Wednesday and Friday: 9:00am-12 Noon. Walk-ins are welcome for assistance with food and clothing at the Social Ministry Building. For directions, general information or to schedule an appointment, please call us at 281.497.4434.
