  • “If you can’t feed a hundred people, just feed one.” - Mother Teresa
    These are unsettled and chaotic times. The unease pervades and impacts our being. We want to do something, to help in some way, to lessen the burdens of our fellow human beings. The Little Cupboard’s mission is to help in ways that we can. It offers a designated, and dependably safe place where food, drink, personal hygiene items, and other basic life necessities are made available to those in our larger community family who are in most need of this support.  We have noticed a significant increase in the use of The Little Cupboard these days. We ask that when you are out shopping for your family if you would please consider purchasing a few items from the list below. Items can be left in the Mulberry Street side of Parish Hall. There is a labeled container on the ledge by the stairs heading down. Little Cupboard volunteers will take it from there.
    Thank you for your time and generosity, and for making a difference in the lives of fellow human beings.
    Love Lives Here ~ Love Gives Here
    ️ Peace & Blessings ~ Darlene Rooney, Director

heart and soul ministry


Heart and Soul Ministry/The Little Cupboard is a sustainable program for feeding children and families of our local and larger communities. According to Feeding America, “42 million people in the United States face hunger, including nearly 13 million children and more than 5 million seniors.” Feeding America is a nationwide nonprofit organization that feeds more than 46 million Americans through Food Pantries, Soup Kitchens, Shelters, and other community outlets. Though our Little Cupboard can’t address the magnitude of this problem, we do, with the time and talent of dedicated volunteers, with donations, and support, help to assuage some of the hunger faced by those in our little part of the world. Through this ministry hunger and poverty in our communities are addressed each and every day. The Little Cupboard located just outside the Church gate by the labyrinth, contains a variety of nourishing, non-perishable food items for those in our larger community who are food insecure. Consideration is given to foods that contain 22 protein, and a nourishing variety of items are available for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The Little Cupboard coordinates with St. Peter’s youth and children’s programs to incorporate involvement and education about the purpose, promise, logistics, and offers the children actual involvement in the operation of The Little Cupboard. The Little Cupboard is part of the larger parent Heart and Soul Ministry. Together they have served several thousand people in need since founded in 2012 by Deacon Chris Miller-Marcin, Founder. Several area churches and organizations have since created their own Little Cupboard. But its reach has gone even farther, we received a note from a former Lewes resident this summer stating that her granddaughter was taken with The Little Cupboard idea. She took a picture, and the idea back to her church. It is now in full use in Rockland Maine. The Little Cupboard is coordinating with St. Peter’s youth and children’s programs to incorporate activities and education to further understanding in the purpose, promise, logistics and involvement in the operation of The Little Cupboard. The Little Cupboard/Heart and Soul Ministry also participates and assists in organizing food collection and donations to the Community Resource Center, and holiday food donations for Community Resource Center, and other local organizations as requested.
