St. Martin’s Outreach Committee aims to improve lives in our community and in the world. We forge close relationships with local charities and various non-profit organization to do God’s will with our serving hands and open hearts.

Food Security

The World Food Summit of 1996 defined food security as existing “when all people at all times have access to sufficient, safe, nutritious food to maintain a healthy and active life”. St. Martin’s Church strives to keep cupboards at local pantries full in addition to providing food for neighbors in need. The Great Valley Food Cupboard, The Ardmore Food Pantry, and the NEW Highland Food Pantry receive our donations throughout the year.
