St. Paul's Supports the Food Bank
The Upper Marlboro Churches Food Bank is a ministry begun in 1982 as a source of help to the needy persons in our community. We primarily give food and serve in the name of Jesus, not in the name of any one denomination.
The Food Bank distributes food out of Trinity Episcopal Church Parish Hall at 14519 Church Street, Upper Marlboro, MD 20772, on the second Saturday of each month, 7:00-9:00 a.m. The church phone number is 301-627-2636.
The food is collected from the various churches in Upper Marlboro. Our representative, Trudy Smith, then sees that the donations are brought to Trinity Parish Hall so they can be sorted, packed and distributed. Donations are always needed and can be dropped off at St. Paul's any time the building is open.
We gave out 102 bags to 31 families in February. We need jelly this month and we are packing 100 bags.
