Weekend Backpack Food Bags

The Weekend Backpack Ministry would like to thank all of the St. Rose parishioners for their gifts of food items to fill Weekend Backpack bags for 32 children from food-insufficient homes in a Rutherford County Elementary and High School. With your help, our ministry has prepared 108 Backpack Bags each month.

Here is a current list of needed individual sized food items:

  • Individual packs of Easy Mac & Cheese
  • Oatmeal
  • Individual pack of Pop Tarts
  • Vienna Sausage
  • Beanie Weanies
  • Chef Boyardee Pasta Bowls or individual sized entrée bowls
  • Shelf-stable milk (individual size any flavor)

Thank you for assisting us in this Corporal Work of Mercy! As a reminder, please check the “Best By Date” on your purchases!!.
