How Martha's Mission Serves The Community
Martha's Mission provides food to an average of 300 and 350 families every month. Families in need of food are screened and referred to us by State or Federal social service agencies in Carteret County. The amount of food given to each family depends on the number of people in the family.
Martha's Mission’s 2014 Food-A-Thon has begun and will continue through December, preparing for the influx of families in need of holiday meals.
A list of foods that we regularly collect: canned vegetables, canned fruits, peanut butter, jams and jellies, cooking oil, cereal (adult and children), flour, sugar and rice. But for the holidays, we especially need the following for our goodie bags: dressing mix, spaghetti and pasta sauce, canned meat, popcorn, cool aid, cake mixes and frosting, cracker sets, and all personal hygiene items.
We are also accepting monetary donations here.
Thank you in advance for contributing to our service here at Martha's Mission. You help to keep our shelves stocked to help meet the needs of those in our county depending on us to provide food.
