The Food Insecurity Team is excited to partner with The Bulb, which provides (mostly) local produce and health and wellness education to food insecure neighborhoods through weekly markets. We are installing a permanent collection bin in the Parish Life Building lobby to collect empty, clean one-dozen egg containers and plastic or reusable shopping bags. These items are used regularly at the weekly markets and are a great help to our neighbors transporting fresh food home.
