To date this year, our 17 Cents – Change Hunger outreach campaign has collected $1069, which amounts to 6288 pounds or 3.1 tons of food! That is an amazing amount of food that will be ready to go to the 4Saints Food Pantry at St. Luke in the Meadow Episcopal Church in Fort Worth; St. Luke’s is in the Meadowbrook area of Fort Worth, in an area of low-income families, and hunger is an issue there.

Hang on to your coins! We are going to pause this coin collection until the food pantry gets closer to opening its doors. Don’t worry, though – other churches in our deanery, St. Alban’s, Arlington and St. Stephen’s, Hurst, and St. Luke in the Meadow plan to implement our giving campaign at their churches.

Get more involved in the food pantry

You can get more involved, too. St. Luke’s will need people to volunteer to staff the food pantry, so please contact St. Martin’s outreach committee members Joy Malmgren at or Deacon Henry Penner at to connect with the hands-on work of this ministry.
