St. Columba’s Food Ministry

Community Outreach
Through Food

At St. Columba, we believe that food is a vital focus that connects us to one another and to God, and through it we can offer hospitality to a hungry community. Hunger is not limited to the need for food; many hunger for community, meaning, authenticity, support, and direction. When we share food, we share something important about ourselves. When we gather to eat together, we form a community.
As St. Columbans, we receive nourishment for our hunger when we know that we are loved by God, when we work together, and when we know that we are a part of a community that cares about us. During special Sunday services, we share a meal and reflect on hunger and nourishment. We seek to share that sense of nourishment with others.

Maywood Luncheons


We live in a community where seniors often go hungry.

Since 2016, St. Columba’s Food Ministry has been providing a monthly luncheon at the Edwin-Crawford Senior’s Residence. The project has grown into a true community building success story incorporating both individuals and organizations in providing food items, volunteers, as well as entertainment and informative presentations.

St. Columba Gardens

In 2017 the Food Ministry was the recipient of a $15,000 grant from TD Bank’s “Friends of theEnvironment Foundation.”

We proceeded to create our “Community Harvest Garden,” consisting of 8 raised garden beds which are made available to the community.
