St Mark Community Food Bank Receives State Award
Our Food Bank that serves over 950 individuals a month and provides over 40 Micah Food Backpacks to Winter Street School each week was awarded the 'Outstanding Rural Partner Award' from the Maryland State Food Bank in Baltimore in September. This is an annual award to the local food bank that best serves the goals and mission of feeding individuals and families. The St. Mark Food Bank allows families to choose what food they prefer along with providing a choice of meat, eggs and produce. Over 50 volunteers give of their time to serve Monday through Friday when the Food Bank is open from 1 pm till 3 pm. This ministry has been in existence for over 35 years having been started by Beth Stouffer and now coordinated by Julie Stouffer (no relation just coincidence) and supported by a variety of churches and individuals. While we are proud to be honored in this way we are more honored to be able to serve our neighbors by providing one of life's core needs of food. For more information please contact the church to volunteer or donate either food or a financial gift.
