Food Pantry Network of Licking County
Chuck Moore, Executive Director

The founding goal of the Food Pantry Network of Licking County was to ensure that no one in Licking County would have cause to suffer from hunger. Twenty seven years later, the Food Pantry Network continues to hold true to its purpose that no one in our area goes hungry. The affiliated pantries utilize over 300 volunteers in fighting the war against hunger. Chuck Moore returns to St. Luke's to update us on his organization's continued efforts to combat hunger.

Fascism: A Warning 
by Madeleine Albright

A personal and urgent examination of Fascism in the twentieth century and how its legacy shapes today’s world, written by one of America’s most admired public servants, the first woman to serve as U.S. secretary of state. A Fascist, observes Madeleine Albright, “is someone who claims to speak for the whole nation.”  Fascism: A Warning is a book for our times that is relevant to all times. Written  by someone who has not only studied history but helped to shape it, this call to arms teaches us the lessons we must understand and the questions we must answer if we are to save ourselves from repeating the tragic errors of the past. St. Luke's Book Club meets in the Undercroft beginning at 7:00 pm. All members are welcome to attend. If you would like a copy of Albright's book, contact Wayne Piper at
