In recent years, the St. Stephen’s Food Pantry, like many, has had to stretch to meet the growing demand in our area. We currently distribute 160-170 bags per month to needy people in our areas.
In order to do so, the Food Pantry relies on support from a number of area organizations. We appreciate the aid provided by the local Scout troops, by the St. Louis Food Bank, and by a number of our neighboring congregations in Ferguson.
Without ongoing donations of food and money from individuals and organizations, we would not be open today. Furthermore, we are always looking for volunteers to help with shopping or distribution of our food.
The blog was started to talk about issues impacting the pressroom both positively and negatively. The views expressed here are not of the LA Times, but of each individual's opinion. The Pressmen's Club is composed of men and women who have printed the paper for twenty years or more. Semi-annual dinners are held in March and October. See Ed Padgett for more information.
