"Plot Against Hunger" Garden Update
A volunteer team of 8 parishioners has planted tomatoes, red and jalapeño peppers, eggplant, collards, kale, cucumbers, squash and green beans. We harvested 18 quart bags of lettuce so far for the Food Pantry with more on the way! For our newly planted tomatoes, we would greatly appreciate gently used tomato cages for 12 tomato plants. Please leave adjacent to the trees near the garden and we will put it to good use promptly.
Paper Grocery Bags Needed
The OLQP Food Pantry uses paper grocery bags with handles for our large number of participants who come to the pantry only one time. We are running short of bags and would be happy to take your excess. Leave them in the food collection bin. Thank you!
OLQP Delegation in Medor, Haiti
Two members, Kris Casey and Bob Efimba, are there for the first time. Other team members include Kathy Desmond, Dave Carlson, and Dr. Sue Carlson. During the trip, they will check on the programs supported by OLQP. They will visit the schools and see how the com-puter lab is operating. They will meet with the sisters and visit the clinics they are operating. They also will visit the tree nurseries and observe some of the trees planted on the mountainside to see how they are helping to prevent erosion. They will meet with the clean water/sanitation committee and the parish council and continue to deepen our relationship with the Medor community.
