The Vestry of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Put-in-Bay Ohio has decided, based on the unanimous recommendation of the St. Paul’s Outreach Committee, that the St. Paul’s Food Pantry will be available by appointment, rather than at specific times, as of June 2. Those in need may call Fr. Bob Solon at 419-285-6809, or Mrs. Candy Baker at 440-708-8176 to make arrangements to pick up donations.
“We didn’t come to this decision lightly. Recently, both our cash to buy food and our stores of available food have been depleted at a really rapid rate,” said Fr. Solon, St. Paul’s Priest-in-Charge. “Food prices are higher now, and our incoming donations of food and cash weren’t keeping pace. The Food Pantry has been part of our ministry here for some time, and we fervently want to continue this ministry in some fashion through these leaner times.”
Donations of shelf-stable food may be left in the donation bin at the door of the Pantry. For cash donations, please call Fr. Bob or visit the parish website.
The Church and Labyrinth are open for prayer/meditation 10am to 7pm daily. For further information, contact the church office at 419-285-5981 or at stpaulspib “at” frontier.com.
