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.
Provide meals for children who rely on their school’s free meal programs during the school year.
Provide children in underserved communities with a nutritious meal and after-school activities.
Farm To Food Bank
Engages farms across the state in a partnership to provide hungry Marylanders with fresh, local produce.
Pantry On The Go
