How did our life's journey lead you to the doorstep of St. Vincent de Paul Middletown?
I've been active in ministries serving the poor and homeless for more than 30 years. I've lived in very poor communities in Latin America, worked in inner-city Seattle and Hartford here in the U.S., and managed housing programs, soup kitchens and food pantries. At St. Vincent de Paul Middletown, I am priviledged to be able to provide all of those services in the very neighborhood that I live. CLICK TO READ FULL INTERVIEW Read about the new system

Thank you, Middletown and Rocky Hill postal patrons and their U.S. Post Offices for the 11,300 pounds of non-perishable food items picked up and delivered on Saturday!

Forty-four 4th grade students from Lawrence School in Middletown visited the Amazing Grace Food Pantry to meet a delivery of food from Peapod by Stop and Shop. The Lawrence School students applied for funding from Kids Give Back in New Haven and received a $250 grant from Peapod. After winning, the students visited the Peapod website and placed their order for foods they thought were healthy. The students did a great job of shopping and were able to provide the Amazing Grace Food Pantry 248 pounds of food to help feed our hungry neighbors. Our heartfelt thanks to the 4th grade students at Lawrence School, Kids Give Back, and Peapod by Stop and Shop for this generous donation.
Thank you, Lawrence Elementary School for your recent contributon of 700 pounds of cans of food to Amazing Grace Food Pantry! Hooray to the kindergarten classes who challenged the older students to raise 100 pounds each class! CLICK TO READ MORE
