Immaculate Heart of Mary Stewardship Center & Food Bank

The Immaculate Heart of Mary Food Bank was started in 1976 by volunteer parishioners. The Immaculate Heart of Mary Food Bank provides a helping hand for struggling families,  and without bias of religion or ethnicity we strive to emulate the teachings of Mother Teresa – to serve the poor and needy with assistance of food and basic life necessities.

In September of 2012, Immaculate Heart of Mary received an amazing gift. Parishioners, who wish to remain anonymous, purchased, completely renovated, and then donated an entire building to the church!  What a truly powerful sign of Stewardship.  This former daycare center, named appropriately The Immaculate Heart of Mary Stewardship Center. The food bank has been in operation at this new location since October 1, 2012.  We are overjoyed and grateful for this generous gift to our parish!

How it Works


Clients or families in need of assistance must live within our service boundaries or be a registered member of the church, with a membership number found on offertory envelopes received by mail. No one is denied a one-time emergency food bag, and they receive referrals to other agencies within their boundaries.

The amount of food received is based on the number of dependents and their family’s needs as well as our available supply. Picture I.D., PLUS proof of current residency dated within 30 days, is required to receive services or you must be a registered, active parish member.

Our bread room is open to anyone in need and our service boundaries do not apply. Clients may visit our bread room once per week. Selection varies based on our vendors/donations and is on a first come-first serve basis.

The boundaries for our Food Bank extend east of I-25 to Quebec from 104th to 160th Ave
