Affton Christian Food Pantry

Dear SHF Friends,
Many blessings to you! I am writing to thank you for your recent gift, and for all you do to care for those in need! This year has brought many new challenges to our world, our community, and to the pantry. As we pass the one-year mark of this pandemic, we are hopeful for our future. Because of your help and generosity, we are able to continue serving our neighbors. From its beginning, ACFP has been a “Choice Pantry,” allowing our client families to shop our pantry shelves and take home their desired groceries. To help maintain distances, we have switched to a prepackaged style distribution. Our mission remains the same, “to live our Christian faith, provide food & assistance to the hungry in the Affton Community, and treat all with compassion and dignity.” We are grateful for your gifts totaling $3,325.10 Seven Holy Founders Fill the Van Event with 4,144 pantry items which we received on 8/30/2021. It is truly a blessing to us! With your help, we continue to serve all who come to us for food assistance now and all year long! SHF Friends, your generosity plays a critical role to ensure that meals are on the tables of those most in need in our community. Thank You! May your days be filled with joy in the Lord and hopefully we will be rejoicing together again soon!  
With appreciation,
Eve Brandes Executive Director, Affton Christian Food Pantry

Our St. Vincent de Paul Society supports the Affton Christian Food Pantry (ACFP). The AFCP serves families that reside in the 63123 zip code and is supported by its fifteen member churches, one of which is SHF. Operating out of the St. George Parish Center, the Pantry serves over 250 families every two weeks. During the summer months donations of food are usually small, but the demand is greater because the children cannot participate in their school lunch programs. The Pantry particularly needs donations of pasta, pasta sauce, beef stew, chili, tuna, mac and cheese, peanut butter, cereal, meal supplements, fruit, and toilet paper. Every year SHF fills a ACFP Van with donations from our parishioners.
