Why We Serve: These are families who do not want the hand out that comes with patronizing a food pantry, but also cannot afford to shop at a for-profit supermarket. They are families who are struggling to make ends meet and may be one missed paycheck away from serious financial hardship.
What We Serve: Nominally priced groceries in an environment that provides dignity in the shopping experience.

Manna & More
St. Luke's has a vision and mission to serve the needs of the community through food ministry. Providing "manna" at a local, free food pantry for our needy neighbors became a year-round commitment in 2003 with the launch of the Gift Bag Program. Here's how the program works: Brown bags are distributed to the congregation once a month. The bag is labeled with a specific food item needed at the food pantry. During the month, the food item is returned in the brown bag and placed in food collection baskets. Over 100,000 parcels of food have been collected and distributed through this ministry. In partnering with local food pantries, additional needs were discovered. Consequently, "manna" was expanded to include "more" such as donation drives for children's shoes, school supplies and personal hygiene items. Contact: email@example.com
