About Our Ministry

St. Felix Pantry is a nonprofit charitable organization incorporated in 1992.

For well over twenty five years, the Pantry has been a safety net for people struggling to support their families in times of crisis. We provide, free of charge, food, clothing, household items, and referral services. But people served by the Pantry need more than food, clothing, and household items; they need respect for their dignity, compassion for their suffering, hope for their children, and a place that welcomes and empowers them for their journey. These are the real gifts of the Pantry.

The need for these services has grown in relationship to the economic downturn: loss of jobs, rise in food and fuel costs, and recent cutbacks in welfare and healthcare benefits. Weekly, the pantry provides food for 1,000 individuals.

Our Core Values

Respect for Human Dignity: our reverence for and commitment to promoting and protecting the dignity of persons.
Compassion: an empathetic consciousness of others expressed in caring service.
Transformation: the process that encourages an open mind and heart, leading to continuous improvement of the person and ministry.
Solidarity with the Poor: ensuring the needs of the poor and vulnerable are met through advocacy and action.
Justice and Peace: forging right relationships…recreating a sustainable environment… promoting the common good all in pursuit of peace.
