Our goal is to package food for delivery once a month to a family in need. The class is open to all. There is no cost, but you may give a free will offering to cover the cost of the food.

ATTENTION SHOPPERS: In your weekly shopping please make an extra effort to keep St. Mark’s Food Pantry in mind. An easy way to do this is to capitalize on any “two-for-one” offers in the market. Our Lord Christ reminds us that the poor are always with us…so, Please remember to bring an item of non-perishable food with you when you are able. Thank you.
