Food Collection

  • Drive-Thru Collection

    Food and Recycling Collections on the third Saturday of every month from 9am-10am.  

    You are invited to drive through St. Jude’s parking lot as many third Saturdays as you can to drop off a bag(s) of food AND your aluminum cans and plastic drink bottles with a CRV separated into bags for recycling.  If possible, crushing the bottles and cans ahead of time is very helpful.

    Questions? Want to donate but are unable to drop off?  Want to volunteer in the parking lot? Have a truck for delivery?  Please contact Greg Stelmar (805)279-5432.  Not getting out to shop?  A check to LOAVES AND FISHES is welcome and can be dropped off in the car line or mailed to the church. For additional information contact Greg Stelmar (805)279-5432.
