A community food pantry for low income and homeless people in our community is provided by the partnership of Temecula United Methodist Church and St. Catherine of Alexandria Catholic Church. We serve an average of 125 families on a weekly basis. It is supported by both congregations as well as from food donations received from Albertson's and Trader Joe's. Additional funding for the food pantry is provided by the MONKS and ladies of Temecula United Methodist Church together putting on a memorable Spaghetti Dinner in the month of March raising $3300 for the Food Pantry and Project Touch and the annual Birdies for Bread Golf Tournament as well as participating in the annual "Friends of the Poor" Walk held in March.
Non-perishable grocery items are delivered weekly to St. Catherine's from weekly contributions from Temecula United Methodist Church.
