Parish Social Ministry Pantry:
(516) 921-8030, x 140
Mondays - Thursdays: 9:30 AM - 12:00 PM
Parish Social Ministry (PSM) provides food and basic necessities of living through the parish pantry, with the assistance of Island Harvest and the Island Harvest providers, such as King Kullen of Huntington; Stop & Shop in Oyster Bay; Marios Pizzeria in Plainview; 7-11; Panera Bread in Plainview and Fox Hollow of Woodbury.
The Pantry, located in the main parking lot adjacent to the Gymnasium, is open at the times listed above. Those in need are welcome to visit the Pantry during its operating hours or make an appointment by calling the Pantry office. New clients will meet with a PSM coordinator to discuss their needs and situation confidentially. The coordinator can make referrals to the St. Edward Conference of St. Vincent de Paul if necessary.
PSM relies on the gracious support of our parishioners and various parish ministries (such as the Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Catholic Daughters, Religious Ed and St. Edward School) throughout the year, especially with the monthly Missioners’ Food Collections and periodic drives, including Back-to-School, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter.
PSM also organizes the Hot Lunch Program at Eastwoods Apartments in Syosset. These special lunches are served most months throughout the year.
If you or anyone you know needs assistance, please contact the Pantry office. If you would like to help PSM or make a donation, please visit the Pantry office or call the number above.
