St. Martha's Food Pantry
The St. Martha's Food pantry supplies emergency food to as many as 812 families each week. What makes this facility so special is that people are able to make their own selections of food choices, just like in the grocery store. When available, guests are given a choice of canned vegetables and can choose their favorite kind, or perhaps beef stew instead of spaghetti and meatballs. Choice is significant -- it raises the level of respect and dignity for an individual receiving food. The pantry is open on Wednesdays starting at 9:30 a.m. There is an indoor waiting area and guests are called by number to shop in the new facility.
