On Sun., Feb., 23, Bishop Dennis Sullivan is celebrating Mass in support of the faithFULL diocesan food drive at Incarnation Parish, 240 Main Street in Mantua at 11:30 a.m.
This drive will help Food Bank of South Jersey and Community FoodBank of New Jersey, as well as Catholic Charities feed those in need at a time when food banks and pantries are traditionally low on food.
In addition, from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m., Bishop Sullivan has asked every parish and school in the diocese to bring canned food items to the:
Food Bank of South Jersey, 1501 John Tipton Blvd., Pennsauken; and the
Community FoodBank of New Jersey, 6735 Black Horse Pike, Egg Harbor Township
Food items such as canned tuna fish, beans, fruit, soup, chili, etc. as well as peanut butter can be dropped off at any parish in the Diocese of Camden.
