The Hunger Relief Committee thanks all who participated in the Fish and Loaves food collection during Lent. They collected 124 cans of tuna, 12 cans of mackerel and salmon, 18 boxes of crackers, 10 boxes of Tuna Helper and 12 boxes of bread mix. The donations were divided evenly between three food pantries: East Wayne Street, St. Patrick’s and Wellspring. The committee is especially grateful that church members contributed to Fish and Loaves in addition to supporting the church’s monthly food collections.
