Martha’s Choice Marketplace, sponsored by the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, is the largest, most visited food pantry in Montgomery County, serving more than 1000 families & 3500 individuals each month, while distributing over 1 million lbs. of food yearly. Located in Norristown Pa., Martha’s not only provides our clients with the dignity of shopping for the foods that they and their families prefer, in a grocery store like environment, we also provide a holistic approach to hunger prevention by providing education, and personal empowerment opportunities that recognizes each person’s basic human dignity; with all of his or her gifts and needs, challenges and strengths.
At Martha’s we seek to create genuine fellowship in an environment that is friendly, welcoming, and respectful; where the voice of the community we serve guides our programs, and where relationships are organic and sincere, positive and impactful.
Martha’s Choice Marketplace, the largest food pantry in Montgomery County, serving more than 6,000 food-insecure families, now includes Martha’s Community Farm.
The Farm has breathed new life into what was formerly known as St. Gabriel’s Hall in Audubon. It grows vegetables, flowers and herbs to supply families accessing Martha’s Choice Marketplace and other local pantries.
Martha’s Community Farm has partnered with a host of organizations, among them Montgomery County Anti-Hunger Network, Lower Providence Township, Penn State Extension, Aclamo, Montgomery County, HopeWoarx, Variety Club Villanova and Cabrini University, to offer education as well as plots and programs to local residents and groups.
At Martha’s, families and volunteers across all walks of life come together to make connections foster a climate of mutual respect, understanding and growth.
Volunteers are always needed for the gardening seasons to help with a wide range of activities. Martha’s is also seeking donations to support the food pantry and the Farm. Come grow with us!
