Proir to AMEN, St. James maintained it's own food pantry operation.
As part of our community outreach, St. James participates in the AMEN Food Pantry.
A.M.E.N. , Alcorn Ministry for Emergency Needs, is a non-profit, community-centered food pantry.
St. James has been a participant since the organization's inception in 1993.
Our parish is currently requested to supply peanut butter and jelly as our primary staple items.
These are generally collected the last sunday of each month.
However, donations can be dropped off at any time in the church lobby.
Also on the last Sunday, any cash collected from the poor box is donated to AMEN.
