Over the past 20 years, Social Outreach at Holy Comforter Church has been providing food for area families. The generous donations of parish members helps to provide food and toiletries to these area families in need. Holy Comforter’s Food Pantry distributes an average of 350 pantry bags each month. Food includes donations from St. Thomas Aquinas Church, Food Lion and Kroger grocery stores, along with free and purchased food from the Jefferson Area Food Bank.
Our Food Pantry is also the happy recipient of food drives conducted by Charlottesville Catholic School and several area organizations. All of these donations help the Food Pantry provide meat, canned goods, produce, bread and bakery to families in need.
