St. Mark’s collects food each week for Helping Neighbors Food Pantry, one of the largest food pantries in the area. St. Mark’s joins with 30 churches and organizations who participate through food donations, monetary donations, and workers to staff the pantry four days a week. They serve an average of 40-60 families each day, and St. Mark’s continues to be one of the most active churches supporting this city-wide effort.
