The Lenten Food Drive is a collection by schools and parishes in the Archdiocese of Washington. Begun during the visit to Washington, D.C., by Pope Benedict, the drive provides hundreds of thousands of pounds of food to local food banks and parish pantries each year.
Donations will benefit hungry families in our community, stocking shelves at your local food bank, Catholic Charities’ Southern Maryland Food Bank and the Capital Area Food Bank.
Simply fill a bag with food and bring it to your parish or school by the deadline. Schools: March 21-25, 2022. Parishes: March 26 and 27, 2022.
