Food drive Sept. 18 at St. Joe’s

St. Joseph Church is hosting a food donation drive on Saturday, Sept. 18, for the “Neighbors in Need” program sponsored by Catholic Charities.

Donations of food will be accepted from 9 to 11:30 a.m. in the church’s north parking lot at 17951 Dixie Highway in Homewood. This will be a “pop-the-trunk” drive that will not require any direct contact between volunteers and donors.

Mary Ellen Brabec said the food drive will benefit the South Regional Office of Catholic Charities, which is seeing an increase in need because of people struggling due to the COVID-19 pandemic.


The regional office pantry is in need of canned vegetables and soups, dry cereal, oatmeal, peanut butter, jelly, pasta and pasta sauce, rice, macaroni and cheese, tuna and canned fruit and fruit juice.

“We know our H-F community will be generous with their donations,” Brabec said, “and I thank everyone in advance.”
