The St. Mark’s Food Bank’s mission is to gather, manage and distribute resources to families or individuals in a crisis situation. Donation of food and monetary donations from parishioners to the St. Jude Fund are used to support this ministry. Volunteers staff the center.

Thanks to all who contribute to the St. Jude Fund. Money received from this fund is used to buy food and essential items for those in need.
