Use the Maryland Food Bank food finder to get the help you need close to where you live.
I want to volunteer
Volunteering is one way you can join the fight against hunger- by giving your time. Monetary donations are much-needed and always welcome.

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.
