Since January of 2009 our parish community has been consistently donating bread to the Cornerstone soup kitchen. The original appeal went out when it was learned that the Freihofer Bakery outlet was closing, which had been a main supplier of assorted bread goods for the Cornerstone, which serves over 45,000 meals and 4,000 beds of lodging a year.
In this article, we'll follow fellow-parishioner Tom Wilk, as he delivers our weekly bread collection. Since January of 2009 to April 3, 2012, our parishioners have donated 4,991 loaves of bread, and 679 grocery items to the Cornerstone soup-kitchen !

Many thanks for the committed support of those participating parishioners, and we welcome additional families and individuals who can manage to even donate one loaf of bread a week. It's a great way to involve the kids, - let them select the loaf or loaves when doing your weekly shopping, knowing that it's going to those families and individuals in need and / or out of work, especially during this difficult economic time.
