Food Programs Through Catholic Social Services
Hundreds of thousands of men, women, and children in our community go without enough food to eat. Catholic Social Services recognizes this challenge and has a wide range of programs that provide meals to those in need.
Martha’s Choice Marketplace is the largest, most visited food pantry in Montgomery County. Martha’s Choice serves more than 1,000 families and 3,500 individuals each month. We distribute over 1 million lbs. of food yearly. Martha’s provides our clients with the dignity of shopping for the foods of their preference in a grocery store-like environment. We also provide a holistic approach to hunger prevention by providing education, and personal empowerment opportunities that recognize each person’s basic human needs and dignity. Martha’s also operates a community farm at the former St Gabrielle’s Hall.
Too many people in our communities go without food. Food insecurity is one of the main issues affecting children. Catholic Social Services provides food for those in need at food pantries located throughout the community. Our food pantries serve individuals and families from every walk of life. Our food pantries can be found at our area Family Service Centers.
