Holy Spirit’s Food Pantry is open from 9 to 11 a.m. on the fourth Saturday of every month. In explaining why the congregation started the program, parishioner Mary Garland shared her family’s struggling with securing enough food when she was growing up in Verona. “The reason for telling this secret now is that it is not uncommon for families in a town like Verona to be struggling today,” she wrote. “Uncertain economic times, divorce, illness or the inability to find income that provides enough for a family can all contribute to this ‘hidden poverty’.”

Holy Spirit maintains a bin by its side door where donations for the Food Pantry can be left. It maintains a list of urgently needed items on its website.
