Loaves & Fishes Food Drive

SMPC holds a huge food drive every fall to benefit our neighbors served by Loaves & Fishes.

 

This October, the SMPC canned food drive will include a request for books featuring children of color.  St. Giles Loaves & Fishes has partnered with Promising Pages.  Promising Pages is a nonprofit organization that collects new and donated books and shares them with children living in the Charlotte Area Book Desert, homes with few if any books.  60,000 children in the Charlotte Area live in a book desert.  Please help encourage a lifelong love of reading by visiting our Amazon book wish list.  Research shows the most successful way to improve the reading achievement of low-income children is to increase their access to print. 

FOOD DRIVE REQUESTED ITEMS:

canned meat, canned fruit, canned or dry pasta, cereal, canned vegetables, corn muffin mix
