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.
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.
Help us meet the increasing need for food throughout this crisis
We need 13- to 60-year-olds to help sort food and perform various tasks

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.
The pandemic is no match for the drive and determination of our donors. Individuals and families of all ages and walks of life have stepped up in a major way, doing what they can to help keep Marylanders fed during this difficult time.
In preparation for the Thanksgiving holiday, Baltimore Area Community Health Services (BACHS) Healthcare, located in West Baltimore City, reached out to MFB in hopes of supplementing their mental health services with food assistance for their clients in need. The partnership resulted in successful food distribution events that brought joy and hope into the lives of food-insecure families, just in time for the holidays.
Based on our 40+ year track record of maintaining a comprehensive, statewide food assistance safety net, we are helping maximize the impact of CARES Act funding to combat the increased food insecurity brought on by COVID-19.
