  • Description: For over 20 years the society of St. Vincent de Paul has operated food for families in the Altoona-Johnstown diocese. Following the call to feed the hungry the society operates two food banks and two family kitchens, one in altoona and one in johnstown as well as five food pantries serving Altoona, Carrolltown, Ebensburg, Johnstown and Patton. Through the work of our dedicated members and volunteers nearly 100,000 meals were served last year at our kitchens and some 1500 families per month receive much needed groceries from our SVDP pantries each month. In addition our parish conferences assisted many families with food and household supplies.
