Matt. 25:35-36: "For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me" (NIV).
In Mark 6, when the disciples realize that there are thousands of people following Jesus far from home, they ask the Lord to send the people home so they can eat. Jesus' response was, "You give them something to eat." This is God's directive for us all.
Due to a fire on May 25, Martha's Pantry remains closed until June 9, when it will re-open at Vancouver Heights United Methodist Church.
Also, if you are able, please visit our GoFundMe account to help with rebuilding the Pantry.
Founded in 1986 as an outreach of MCC of the Gentle Shepherd, Martha's Pantry is the only non-government agency in southwest Washington serving those living with HIV and AIDS. Martha's Pantry provides food for 50 to 60 client families each month and distributes personal hygiene items, household cleaning supplies, pet food, food preparation and storage items, as well as clothing and household items donated to the pantry.
The pantry is an all-volunteer organization funded entirely by donations and grants. For more information on Martha's Pantry, call the church at 360-695-1480 or visit the Pantry's website at:
