In the Marianist tradition of family spirit, the Grand Walkers Lay Marianist Community in conjunction with the Queen of the Apostles Social Justice Committee will host the 2nd annual Pancakes to Pantry breakfast on Sunday, Sept. 29 to support Chaminade Julienne’s student food pantry.
The event, held from 11:30 to 1:30 p.m. in the Si Lounge at Mt. St. John (directions), is open to the CJ community. Last year, $1,000 was raised to provide food and drink for students who, on any given day, may need something extra to supplement their lunch.
"This simple food pantry has filled a gap for those students whether there is a financial need or to help them get through a long day when they have forgotten a lunch,” said Angela Mason, administrative assistant in the office of student services where the pantry is located.
“It has been a true blessing for these students and many try and pay it forward by replacing what they have used," she said.
Members of the CJ community are also welcomed to contribute to the student food pantry directly. Healthy, non-perishable lunch items are always appreciated.
