Food Drive

The MLK Food Pantry is a vital resource for many in our community. For some, it is the difference between eating and not eating. For more than a decade, St. Mary's has been generously collecting food for the pantry. According to MLK Center Director of Development, Alyson Novick, St. Mary's keeps the pantry running. St. Mary's and parishioners Dave and Donna Goodrich are featured in a Newport Life Magazine article entitled "The Hunger Game."
