Task Force on Hunger Fundraiser: Mostaccoili Meals-to-Go
Saturday, May 1, 2021, 4:00 PM
May is Hunger Awareness Month in the Diocese of Missouri. We are kicking off the month with a delicious fundraiser to help us provide more food services for our neighbors in need.
The Diocesan Task Force on Hunger will be cooking and serving mostaccioli dinners for $15 each, with all proceeds benefiting our community-based hot meal programs, food pantries, and blessing boxes found throughout the diocese.
Your meal will include:
- mostaccioli (meat, vegetarian, or gluten-free)
- fresh salad
- garlic bread
Order and pay for your meal now. Pick up your meal at the St. Louis Activities Center at 5602 Arsenal Street in St. Louis (on the Hill) on Saturday, May 1, between 4 and 6 p.m. (see pick up details below). Task Force members will deliver the packaged meals to your car -- we'll keep the process safe for everyone!
We understand this fundraiser is only practical for people who live in or near the St. Louis metropolitan area. We encourage parishes outside the metro area to consider hosting a similar fundraiser (at some point in the future) to allow people in your area to support our hunger ministries. Please contact Task Force chair Jane Mayfield if you are interested in discussing the possibilities.
Each year the Task Force on Hunger grants thousands of dollars to our faith communities to provide food ministries. But the need is great. We invite you to help us do more through this fundraising event. Follow the details below to be a part of this delicious fundraiser:

Lord, when was it that
We saw you hungry and gave you food?
We saw you thirsty and gave you something to drink?
We saw you a stranger and welcomed you?
We saw you sick and took care of you?
We saw you in prison and visited you?
‘Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.’
—Matthew 25: 37-40 (NRSV)
