Innovative Programs for Healthier Communities

Since 1979, the Maryland Food Bank has sought to meet the immediate needs of food-insecure Marylanders while simultaneously working to find long-term ways to reduce hunger in the state. Below are outreach programs we’ve designed to help some of the most vulnerable people in our society — particularly children, seniors and the working poor.


Offers culinary training to low-income individuals, who learn while producing meals for families in need.

Provides food-insecure children and their families with vital nutrition in a stigma-free environment.

Summer Clubs

Supper Clubs
