foodpantry72Giving Them Choices and Respect

By Nancy Naughton, Associate Executive Director

A constant focus at St. Vincent de Paul is on the people we serve and helping them achieve a brighter, more stable future. As a result, our downtown campus is growing to best serve our neighbors in need.

nancy_headshot_2014Our environment dictates additional action. Our campus is situated on the boarder of the Smoketown and Shelby Park neighborhoods, one of the most economically challenged areas in our city. Many of the households are led by single mothers and they live below the poverty line. Keeping food on the table for their families is an ongoing challenge.

To support our neighbors, SVDP recently opened an Emergency Food Distribution Center and food pantry in conjunction with Dare to Care. It is important to note that the poor often find themselves standing in line for help. They take what they are given, so many with a humble “thank you.” It is rare for them to be able to select anything based on their own needs.
