FOCUS Cincinnati

Our Parish Food Pantry is now coordinated with our efforts as a member of


FOCUS Cincinnati Chapter


Dear Parish Faithful,

As it appears that we are creating a FOCUS Cincinnati pan-Orthodox group, please view this presentation on what a FOCUS Chapter in Cincinnati would look like.


You can learn more about FOCUS North America on their website.


Please contact me if you would like more info on this initiative.


In Christ,

Parish Food Pantry

This legacy post is from our earlier Food Pantry Ministry. Watch for updates or ask Fr Steven for more info.

Dear Parish Faithful,

We would like to staff the pantry each month with different volunteers from the parish. It is a great experience to meet our local neighbors as they visit the pantry... and to spend a couple of hours chatting and serving alongside fellow parishioners!

Our Food Pantry walk-in days are typically the first Saturday of each month. Volunteers serve from 8:45am to 10:45am. Two Volunteers are needed for each day.
We also prepare Food Bags for urgent requests throughout the month. Donations of food and supplies are always greatly appreciated.
Requests for needed items for restocking are made as needed to the parish email list.

Standard Needs

  • Canned Veggies (Peas, Green Beans, Carrots, Corn)
  • Canned Fruit
  • Canned Evaporated milk
  • 100% juice boxes
  • Canned chicken
  • Chicken and Tuna Helpers (please, no hamburger helpers)
  • Granola Bars
  • Breakfast bars
  • Small boxes of cereal (10-12 oz range)
  • Individual Oatmeal packets
  • Chunky Soups (please buy 2 of the same soup)
  • Ravioli O's
  • Crackers (Saltine and Club)
  • Snack Crackers (Lance peanut butter or cheese crackers)
  • Individual cookie packs
  • toothpaste & toothbrushes
  • soap
  • toilet paper

Please place your donations in the blue bin by the Education Center doors in the parish hall.

Thank you for helping us serve our neighbors in the Norwood Community.

In Christ,

Erin Tuttle Lockridge
