St. Matthew Conference of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul

The SVdP Conference of St. Matthew is a group of dedicated volunteers who take food and Safeway gift cards to the homes of the needy in our parish area.  We go out in teams of two. We deliver non-perishable canned and packaged food, and diapers.  We also deliver an extra grocery bag filled with bread, pastries, produce, or meat when available.  

We are fortunate to receive non-perishable food and produce from Second Harvest Food Bank twice a month, and we also pick up meat and bakery donations from Lucky Supermarket in Foster City three times each week.  Other needed food donations come from our parishioners and St. Matthew school.  

Besides receiving and delivering food, our volunteers pack grocery bags and keep the food locker shelves neat and tidy. 

Please contact Kathryn Cross if you would like to volunteer:
