St. Joseph has a food pantry that is open to St. Joseph Parishioners and folks in the Federal Hill area.  A collection of both food and monetary donations is taken up each month.  These gifts are used to help offset the cost for the Food Pantry and to support our participation in preparing meals at the Zion Lutheran Church Soup Kitchen.  Food baskets are also given out at Thanksgiving and Christmas to our food pantry clients, and other families going through a difficult time.
