What You Can Do

Our primary concern is making sure we have enough nutritious food to meet the growing need – both today, and for the foreseeable future. You can help ensure the safety net is there for those who may be facing food insecurity for the first time.

Just like COVID-19 has changed the world, we’ve changed the way we’re feeding Maryland. Our network partners, corporate supporters, and staff have really stepped up to ensure all Marylanders have enough to eat during this unprecedented crisis.

Our Partners are Still Picking up Food

“It was amazing to find bread. I went to six stores last night looking for bread for our homeless table and I was kind of panicking, and when I came here I was like ‘God, I know you left this bread for this homeless table.’ With this, I can serve about 50 to 60 homeless families.”

Regina Brantley, Food Pantry Director, LIFE Church Ministries
