St. John’s Food Basket . . .

Help Us to Help Others

St John’s Food Basket invites you to minister to those in need, through your donation of non-perishable food and related items. Please consider making it a regular practice to bring a little something with you when you come to Church. We ask, too, for your help in identifying those in our local community, who may need assistance of this sort. We have no requirement regarding faith for recipients of our help, so the individuals you submit do not need to be Catholic. If you know of anyone requiring assistance, please call the parish office and leave a message for Debbie Lauda.

Boca Helping Hands

We partner with Boca Helping Hands, an interfaith organization involved in feeding the poor and hungry. We participate in the following ways:

We donate food from our pantry on a regular basis to their main facility.

We participate in their after school sandwich program each week. Every week you can find several of our members assembling sandwiches and delivering them to Veteran’s Park on Palmetto Park Rd, right here in Boca. This feeds hungry students in the after care program there.

Our History

Founded August 2001, we take our name from the miracle of five loaves and two fish, when Christ fed more than five thousand, with twelve basketsful left over.

Our Mission

St John’s Food Basket exists to serve those in our parish family and local community, who find themselves in need of food. Their need may stem from incapacity or illness, unexpected unemployment, minimal income in retirement, or any of a variety of other circumstances.

Ways to Participate

We invite members of the parish to join us as their schedule permits, in any of a variety of ways.

…Meetings are held at 6:45 PM on the second Thursday of the month in Room 4.

…Share from the abundance you have received from God. A collection box for non-perishable items is located in the vestibule at the main entrance. Please check the expiration date on all goods; we cannot distribute expired food.

…Your financial support is also welcome. Checks made out to St. John the Evangelist Church Food Basket may be dropped off at or mailed to the office at church.
