St. Martin's first Community Engagement priority is hunger. Primarily, we tackle hunger with two ongoing ministries, Hunger Sunday and SUPPER. Throughout the year there are additional opportunities help to end hunger through additional food drives or advocacy actions.
"...for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink? And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you, or naked and gave you clothing? And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you?’ And the king will answer them, ‘Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.’
The first Sunday of each month is designated “Hunger Sunday” and parishioners are encouraged to bring nonperishable food items for the local food bank at St. Luke's Episcopal Church in Germantown.
