How We Fight HungerOur approach is to fight hunger by bringing healthy food into local communities today, while building pathways out of hunger tomorrow. Join Us
The Maryland Food Bank is feeding people, strengthening communities, and ending hunger for more Marylanders.
Today, we are serving more working families, more children, and more seniors — but it’s not enough.
We need to offer solutions that help Maryland communities end hunger for good.
In addition to sourcing and distributing more nutritious food (like produce and proteins), we seek to understand and eradicate the root causes of hunger.
Community Hunger Intervention Programs
The Maryland Food Bank reduces the stigma of hunger and reduces the need directly through targeted feeding programs.
Pathways Out of Hunger
The Maryland Food Bank helps people move out of food insecurity and helps them thrive through programs like FoodWorks.

We Need Your Help
Our ability to strengthen Maryland’s food safety net and develop pathways out of hunger for our neighbors in need relies on the philanthropic support of charitable people like you.
Food distribution, workforce development programs, and educational efforts require generous donations of money and time.
We hope you’ll consider a contribution.

Every holiday season, MFB distributes special meal boxes complete with traditional holiday fixings and paired with a turkey to food-insecure families in need.
