Food Delivery

The Supreme Council sanctions the Food for Families program.  Knights of Columbus are committed to helping end hunger through the Food for Families Program which has donated millions of dollars and millions of pounds of food toward this cause. Council and parish families will raise funds to support their local food pantries, food banks and soup kitchens. For every $500 or 1,000 pounds of food donated, the Supreme Council will refund $100 back to the council – up to a maximum of $500 per council per fraternal year. Though in-kind donation of food is valuable, leaders of hunger-relief organizations often comment that financial contributions can be stretched even further and allow nonprofits to procure the exact items needed by the organization and its clients.

Council 8781 is always seeking volunteer drivers, loaders, and storage area cleaners, as well as moving and hauling equipment (trucks, trailers, etc.) to serve in St. John Neumann Parish's Food Delivery program.  No need to be a Knight to volunteer.  If you are interested in volunteering for this important ministry serving the Knoxville and Jellico/Newcomb, Tennessee areas, please consider completing the form below.
