Hospitality Food Circle- Comite de Ayuda de Alimentos


Sometimes the greatest gift is also the simplest. Witness what a cooked meal means to the family of a very ill parishioner. We prepare meals when the primary food preparer is unable due to illness or crisis. We can always use more committed cooks. All that is required is the ability to assemble simple, healthy meals.
