Martha's Place has many programs that are aimed toward community development:
Food Pantry
Martha's Place is a Christian based non-profit community outreach center located in Western Harnett County. Martha's Place will help put an end to a crisis 72,899 individuals are enduring in south central North Carolina. The crisis is hunger.
The food pantry at Martha's Place has grown from providing food for 25 individuals, in five counties, to currently supplying provisions for over 600 individuals on a weekly bases.
Martha's Place Food Pantry is located approximately 20 miles from the nearest population center. This will make Martha's Place accessible to those who can not get to other sites due to distance.
Martha's Place is a ministry of Solid Rock United Methodist Church under the leadership of the Reverend Gil Wise, Lead Pastor. The center is overseen by one full time and two part-time volunteer staff members and numerous other volunteers from local congregations as well as the community.
As a result of the efforts put forth by volunteers, numerous clients have moved from those being served to those serving and donating to others in need.
The food pantry hours are:
Saturday- 9am - 11pm
Sunday- 2pm - 4pm
