Martha’s Choice Marketplace, sponsored by Catholic Social Services, is the largest, most visited food pantry in Montgomery County, focused on building community through access to healthy foods. Prior to April of 2020, Martha’s operated as a ‘choice market’ that allowed customers to shop for their own foods, according to their personal tastes, dietary needs and cultural preferences. However, as a result of the pandemic, Martha’s has switched to a no touch, drive-thru distribution model that focuses on providing families with the core staples of dry goods, meats, fresh produce and dairy, as well as diapers to those families that need them. Martha’s still does everything to possible to utilize the strengths and voices of our community in our work, and we hope to resume our choice model as soon as the pandemic subsides, and trust in personal safety is restored.
Martha’s Choice Marketplace is open Wednesdays from 4-6pm, and Fridays from 11am-1pm.
