Pet Food Bank at St John's Episcopal Church
Every Thursday from 2:00 to 3:00 PM volunteers meet at St. Johnís Episcopal Church on Main Street in Marion, at the outdoor picnic shelter, behind the Parish House to distribute pet food.
Some food supplies are donated by Manna Food Bank, but the majority comes from donations by individuals concerned for the well being of local animals. For a family with many pets a large bag is available. For those with just one animal, the volunteers re-bag small bags for distribution.
The people who receive the pet food are registered with Mercy Rescue, including the number and type of animals in the home. There is no limit to how many times food can be taken each month. On average, food is distributed for 100 animals per week.
