The results of our latest Public Perception Survey are in: more Marylanders than ever – 33 percent – have been affected by hunger themselves, and an overwhelming majority want the state to invest more resources in finding solutions.
This report, a detailed landscape assessment of employment opportunities in Baltimore City, aims to guide the implementation of our Workforce Development (WFD) Partnerships pilot program, which was created to build pathways out of hunger for Baltimore-area residents.
If you need food, please use this map to find an open partner in your community. We are updating the map on a regular basis, but please call the partner first to make sure they are open.
How We Fight Hunger
Now more than ever, we have proven that the food assistance safety net we’ve built over the last 42 years can withstand any crisis. Our expertise combined with a statewide network of thousands of community partners makes it possible to meet the immediate needs of food-insecure Marylanders while simultaneously working to create pathways out of hunger.
We are helping Maryland recover by feeding people, strengthening communities, and ending hunger for more Marylanders. Join us.

A key part of MFB 3.0, our refreshed strategic plan, emphasizes expanding workforce development programs and partnerships that are crucial to not only Maryland’s continued recovery, but its long-term ability to thrive. Some of our Network Partners — including three that you’ll read about here — are already offering these wraparound services. Our Regional Program Directors are working every day to help more of our statewide partners form these kinds of beneficial relationships.
“It takes me back to when I was a child in the inner city where food was a lot scarcer. When your neighbor up the street couldn’t get out or had health issues, so you took what you had and shared with them. To me the food bank is that neighborhood, that village I grew up in. It lets me know that I’m not alone — lets me know that people still care for people.”
To better serve our neighbors in need as rates of food insecurity remain high, we’ve introduced innovative pilot programs to address the root causes of hunger and identify and assist more food-insecure families across Maryland.
