Food Shelf

Food Shelf

We are blessed to have a food shelf at our parish. This longstanding ministry started because two women felt called to help people struggling to feed their families. Pat Finnegan coordinates this ministry. We serve on average, over 75-100 people a month. Recipients of this assistance are parishioners, residents of our Stillwater community and sometimes transient people just passing through the area. We depend on the generosity of our parishioners to keep our shelves stocked. Please remember that for many children there is no midday meal and sometimes, no breakfast when school is out.


Food donations can be placed on the food table at the bottom of the ramp leading up to our atrium at the Church of St. Michael. This cabinet is checked multiple times each week so we can also accept produce, bread, and other perishable items.


Food needs at this time include:

  • Pancake mix (just add water type)
  • Boxed dinners such as Homestyle Bakes
  • Sugar
  • Bottled Juice
  • Jelly
  • Medium & large diapers
  • Cereal
  • Personal care product such as toothpaste.
  • Healthy Snacks
  • Miracle Whip
  • Laundry detergent
  • Fruit such as apples, oranges, cantaloupe, or grapes
  • Garden produce such as lettuce, beans, tomatoes, squash, etc.
  • Cub Foods Gift Cards


If you or someone you know is in need of some food assistance, please call Pat between 9:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m., Monday through Thursday at 651-439-3241.
