Maryland Food Bank EVP & Chief Strategy Officer Meg Kimmel and WYPR’s Sheilah Kast talk about how our refreshed Maryland Hunger Map will inform the future of food assistance work in Maryland.
We are not the same food bank that operated prior to the pandemic. Find out how we’re doing more to continue feeding Maryland’s recovery while building solutions for tomorrow.
If you need food, please use this map to find an open partner in your community. We are updating the map on a regular basis, but please call the partner first to make sure they are open.
How We Fight Hunger
Now more than ever, we have proven that the food assistance safety net we’ve built over the last 42 years can withstand any crisis. Our expertise combined with a statewide network of thousands of community partners makes it possible to meet the immediate needs of food-insecure Marylanders while simultaneously working to create pathways out of hunger.
We are helping Maryland recover by feeding people, strengthening communities, and ending hunger for more Marylanders. Join us.

As children across the state return to some form of schooling this school year, we remain committed to providing young Marylanders with access to the food and nutrition they need to succeed. While schools face many uncertainties this year, one thing is for certain – MFB’s steadfast belief that no child should go hungry will eclipse any potential challenges to feeding kids in need.
Since 2011, Amy Cawley has overseen the Farm to Food Bank Program, which combines field gleanings, donations, and contract growing to form the cornerstone of the food bank’s nutrition strategy. She has helped the program grow from its humble roots with just two partners — First Fruits Farms in northern Baltimore County and Arnold Farms in northeastern Queen Anne’s County — into a powerhouse produce program with more than 60 farms that infuse our statewide food distribution efforts with hundreds of thousands of pounds of nutritious fruits and vegetables annually.
