A great month of food donations!

Best Blogger Tips
As part of their pledge to Walk with Francis, Goya Foods donated 50,000 pounds of food to Catholic Charities this month. It was part of a larger, 150,000 pound donation made to each city visited by Pope Francis this September.

For our part, the 50,000 pounds will be distributed throughout region of food programs and local parish food pantries. Goya officials delivered 5,000 pounds of their donation to our Spanish Catholic Center food pantry in the Mt. Pleasant neighborhood of Washington, DC on December 8.

Combine this generous donation with another incredible year by the Greg Gannon Memorial Food Drive held at Blessed Sacrament, many of the area food pantries are in good shape to meet the need for those who are hungry in our community!
