September is Hunger Action Month, an annual initiative that brings attention to the reality of hunger while rallying individuals to take action. Find out how you can make a difference in the lives of your fellow Marylanders today.
Learn more about our recent construction project through this Q&A with MFB Board Chair Terry Squyres, who recently sat down with us to offer a peek behind-the-scenes of the food bank’s expansion.
Marylanders from all walks of life and every community are affected by hunger in some way, and with the help of our all-new Maryland Hunger Map, we’re able to get a more accurate picture of what hunger really looks like in this state.
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

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.
