Thank you
Crop Walk!

CROP Hunger Walks are community fundraising events sponsored by Church World Service. Twenty-five percent of the money raised in a CROP Hunger Walk is distributed to local hunger-alleviating agencies. This year's agencies are F.I.S.H. (Fellowship in Serving Humanity) and the Lutheran Social Services of Alaska Food Pantry.


Thank you to the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) for choosing FISH as one of 10 Anchorage agencies to receive food from the Stamp Out Hunger food drive in May. FISH received 3000 pounds of food.


Thank you to

Thank you to Credit Union One volunteers for helping to sort the 5000 pounds of food. They worked tirelessly until the job was done!


Many thanks to Brownie Troop #308 for collecting more than $200 in cash and 100 boxes of Girl Scout cookies and for helping to stock the shelves in the pantry.


St. Mary's Youth Help FISH


The 30 Hour Famine is a world-wide event sponsored by World Vision to empower teens to raise awareness about issues of hunger and to raise money to help fight hunger across the globe. They do this by fasting as a group for 30 hours, during which time the youth learn about issues of hunger, engage in service projects, and also have some fun along the way! The youth of St. Mary’s volunteered during their famine at the F.I.S.H. Food Pantry, helping to clean and organize the stocks on hand, especially the generous amounts of peanut butter donated by St. Mary’s parishioners! Over the last four years, St. Mary’s youth have raised over $11,000 to support World Vision’s relief efforts in places like Ethiopia and Haiti, among many others.
