Loaves & Fishes Ministry – Food Pantry

Oprima para leer en Español: Despensa de Alimentos

Thank you for your interest in St Mark Food Pantry and supporting families in our community who are experiencing food scarcity and insecurity. Inspired by the miracle of the multiplication of loaves by Jesus in the Gospels, our Loaves and Fishes Ministry partners with NourishLA to collect and distribute food to families and individuals in need.

Visit the Food Pantry at St. Mark on Saturdays between 11am-1pm to pick up free produce and other food items.
