All Souls Episcopal Church
Every Wednesday morning, Barber Hall (parish hall) comes to life at 9 am when we open the doors for our Outreach Program. As part of the Food Bank Program, we give a maximum of 2 bags of groceries a month per household to those who live in N. Ft. Myers and fall into the income categories set by USDA. With the generous donations of church members and friends of the church, we are able to buy most of the food given out from the Harry Chapin Food Bank. Through our Thrift Store, we provide clothing free. Clients may "shop" in the Thrift Store and receive up to $10 per month (Thrift Store prices) per person per month free; $20 per family.
