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 and over 800 students weekly. Springbrook Mobile Food Bank works to provide a week’s worth of food to a neighborhood with limited food access.
Students can drop off donations in their homeroom classes. Donations can also be dropped off in the Gathering Space at Saint Patrick Catholic Church.
Monetary gifts also accepted!
