This ministry is a cooperative ministry of the local Orthodox Churches dedicated to meeting the emergency needs of the poor of our community. We welcome and encourage the support of the food pantry through food donations, monetary donations and through your holy prayers. We especially welcome volunteers who would like to donate their time to help their brothers and sisters in need.
Our parish is blessed to be the home of the Annual "Get Stuffed With Love" Thanksgiving Dinner Program. This special ministry sees the unique cooperation of the faithful of our parish, the local Rotary Clubs and the Pittsburgh Police Department united together in a common effort to insure the poor of Pittsburgh are fed on Thanksgving Day. The Pittsburgh Police distributed last year 3500+ meals to people in need. The meals were prepared in our hall by vounteers and then distributed by the Pittsburgh Police.
