Food on the First

Food on the First is a Risen Savior partnership with our local food shelf, 360 Communities Resource Center in Burnsville. On the weekend of the first Sunday of each month, we invite parishioners and guests to bring non-perishable items to church when they come to Mass that get donated to the food shelf. You may also drop a check in the collection basket at Mass with "Food on the First" written in the memo line.

On the Monday following the collection, the Apple Valley Knights of Columbus bring all the donated items to the food shelf. In July 2022-June 2023, the parish donated 13,500 pounds of food, which the KC's delivered to the food shelf!
