Serving those in need

"As you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me". Mt 25:40

  April 11, 2020 - The TriParish Food Bank reopens

A Note from the Director:

Today was a very blessed day, full of love and miracles. We served 301 families and gave out 135 bags of diapers. During the food bank, we had a lady named Erin Hazelett bring us donations. She said she was reminded that it was Easter, and she wanted to make sure all the families were able to celebrate. She brought over 80 chocolate bunnies! Vanessa also made cute little bunny treat bags, and made sure all the children received their Easter Bunnies. Fr. Tom was able to come and see how happy everyone was. I am very grateful for all of you and your support. I hope you all have a blessed Easter! 

Thank you!

Tri-Parish Food Bank

"Love for the poor must be in every age the distinguishing mark of Christians.  The poor deserve not just a few alms; they have a claim to justice.  For Christians there is a special obligation to share their goods.  Our example in love for the poor is Christ".  YouCat #427 (2443-2446)

The Tri-Parish Food Bank is a cooperative effort of St. Charles Catholic Church in Burlington, Sacred Heart Catholic Church in La Conner and Immaculate Conception Catholic in Mount Vernon.  Each week many volunteers serve in a variety of ways to ensure that nutritious food is available to anyone who needs it.  Additional partners are Skagit Community Action Agency, Northwest Harvest, and Panera Bread Company.  

Food Bank hours change from the summer through the winter.  During the summer there are large groups of youths from all over the Archdiocese on mission with the Youth Migrant Project.  Much of their time is spent assisting the Food Bank in preparing for the food distribution.

Summer Hours (June through August)  - Wednesday 3:00 to 6:00

Fall/ Winter/Spring Hours (September through May)  - Saturday 12:00 to 3:00
