St. Pat’s Food Rescue E-blast LIST!!
Hello there,We are setting up an E-blast list for our worthy Food Rescue Program that has been serving our community with lovely food items from cafes, stores, bakeries such as Starbucks and Save-On. The Program is strong and on-going and even growing in suppliers.This LIST will assist us with the following aspects of running this program:
- Gives us direct contact with those that have expressed interest and need, as the first to receive, and then to the extended parish if supply allows.
- Helps us confidently secure valuable postings of food items as they are being made available, in good timing limiting waste
- Helps us efficiently plan a concise day/time/location for distribution limiting unnecessary space occupation
- All privacy will be respected and kept

To love one another is to see the face of Christ in every person, beginning with our families. To love one another recognizes a person’s inestimable dignity and worth. To love one another is our shared need for unfailing tenderness, kindness, compassion and care.
National Family & Life Week (NFLW), May 7-14, 2023, is an invitation from the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops to the faithful in Canada to celebrate the joy and beauty of family and life by seeking out new and creative ways to live out this call in our daily lives. The NFLW theme is Jesus’ words, “Love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another” (John 13:34). Love is at the heart of familial relationships and our families are a communion of love in Christ. We are “guardians of life” when we love one another within our families, as well as in wider society when we show kindness toward and care for the vulnerable and marginalized.
