One bad month.  That’s all it takes for many Americans to be economically devastated.  The Covid-19 pandemic has brought more than a year of bad months, and the United States is experiencing a crisis of hunger and food insecurity that hasn’t been seen since the Great Depression.

As part of the Catholic Sisters Week Challenge to End Hunger and Food Insecurity, the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia are sponsoring a food drive on March 12 from 2-6 P.M. and March 13 from 9 A.M. – 12 P.M.  Donations collected will go to support Anna’s Place, which serves those who are food insecure in Chester, Pennsylvania.  Walking with our sisters and brothers at the west end of Chester, Anna’s Place staff discovered there was a need for food, toiletries, and household supplies and now, during this pandemic, provide almost two hundred bags of food and supplies every week. Those able to join our effort may bring donations of nonperishable food, toiletries, household supplies, monetary donations, or grocery gift cards to the Our Lady of Angels Convent parking lot located at 609 S. Convent Rd., Aston, PA 19014.   For more information or directions, please contact 610-558-7726 or communications@osfphila.org.
