St. Kate’s Food Shelf

How to Use the Food Shelf

Any St. Kate’s community member is welcome to use the food shelf, and create a bag of groceries that serves their needs. We offer fresh fruits and vegetables, breads, and an assortment of other foods that will provide a balanced diet.

The food shelf is open on the first and third Wednesday of every month from 12–6 p.m. and is located in the Carondelet Center Kitchen 101, on the CSJ campus across from The O’Shaughnessy. No appointments needed!

If the food shelf’s open hours do not accommodate your availability, reach out to to arrange a pick-up time that works with your schedule. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, email
