Jerome, Idaho (KMVT-TV) Saint Jerome is looking to feed the community, one family at a time.
They held their third annual dinner and auction Saturday night, benefiting the food ministry. The ministry supports the soup kitchen or the community kitchen which is Martha and Mary's Food Pantry.
The organization just started a community garden this year called the Garden of Eden. Saturday's event helps to pay the bills.
Jeff Schroeder adds, "we got more of the community involved, it's being held here at the St. Jerome Catholic Church, but it's a community embraced ministry that we have. We have several different organizations that help support this and this year we're had moe of the outside community, outside the St. Jerome parish so it's really growing into more of a community event so that it meets the community's needs."
Martha and Mary's Food Pantry provides emergency food boxes and supplemental food on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
