To raise awareness regarding the needs addressed by Ithaca Kitchen Cupboard, and the Catholic Charities of Tompkins Tioga (CCTT) Samaritan Center, the Mission Committee has designated the first Sunday of the month as non-perishable food item donation week, and the third Sunday of each month as personal hygiene donation week.  Your assistance is needed and appreciated!

If you have questions or concerns contact any of the Mission Team membersFlorianna Blanton, Marcia Baum, John Jackson, Margaret Johnson and Cora Yao.  This list will be updated periodically.

The Ithaca Kitchen Cupboard provides 3 days of emergency food to local families in need daily, every week. Over 7,000 people yearly are fed. St. John’s needs two volunteers to join our team, to help distribute food from 1–3 on Fridays, every third week. Generally, volunteers serve once every 2–3 months.
