Maryland Food Bank’s COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Efforts

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.

We’re making sure kids have access to contactless Grab & Go meals to replace school meals and school pantry visits; offering hard-working families and individuals fresh produce and shelf stable goods via drive-though food distributions; and ensuring homebound seniors have easier access to nutritious foods where they live.

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
