Parish Outreach

St. Barnabas Food Pantry and Parish Outreach provides food and care for those of our parish community who are in need.

Food is donated by parishioners and other local communities who are so generous in helping those in need. For us as Christians when we help those who are in need, we are helping Christ. “For I was hungry and you gave me food.”

The Parish Outreach is run by Alice Witt and helped by our generous volunteers. If you are in need or would like to volunteer, please contact Alice Witt at 516-785-6243.

Being a volunteer or donating food is the work of Jesus Christ. All the actions and decisions we do is aimed towards the Kingdom of Heaven.
