How We Fight Hunger
We are the hub of Maryland’s food assistance safety net, combining 40 years of expertise with a statewide network of thousands of community partners to meet the immediate needs of hungry Marylanders while simultaneously working to create pathways out of hunger.
We are dedicated to feeding people, strengthening communities, and ending hunger for more Marylanders. Join us.
This exciting tool offers a fresh way of using data to give us the most detailed and accurate picture we’ve ever had of hunger in our state, which is nearly double previous estimates.

I need to know where food banks are
The Maryland Food Bank has a main distribution center in Baltimore and branch office locations in Salisbury on the Eastern Shore, and Hagerstown in western Maryland.
When I go to my refrigerator, and it’s not just empty, it makes me feel good. Living my life now, I wouldn’t pass it up for nothing.
