For over 35 years, the St. Leo Food Connection, part of St. Leo Catholic Parish, has been fighting hunger in Pierce County. St. Leo Food Bank is one of the largest on-site food banks in the country. It is open Tuesday through Saturday. Their Children’s Programs are working to fill the gaps of school meals to eliminate child hunger. The Backpack Program, in coordination with Tacoma School District and Clover Park School District, serves over 30 schools to over 800 students weekly and Springbrook Mobile Food Bank works to provide a weeks worth of food to a neighborhood with limited food access.
Donations can be dropped off in the Gathering Space at Saint Patrick Catholic Church or in bins located throughout Saint Patrick Catholic School.
Monetary gifts also accepted!
