More than 300 pounds of food collected during Lenten food drive

The final totals are in, and this year 318 pounds of food was collected during the St. Elia Lenten Food Drive, a ministry of our parish service group, the Workers of St. Elizabeth.

Food donations received at St. EliaAll food items collected were donated to the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank. As many as 180,000 people in Northeast Ohio rely on the Foodbank for emergency food assistance each year through local food pantries, hot meal sites and shelters with emergency food programs.

According to the Foodbank, the donations received from St. Elia will be enough to provide 264 meals to needy people in our area. Thank you for your generosity!
