Guiding Our Evolution: The Strategy Group

Throughout FY21, we fueled Maryland’s recovery while keeping an eye on the future. Taking the lessons we learned early on in the pandemic, we refreshed our already impactful strategic plan to evolve into the more equitable, resilient, and accessible food system Marylanders need.

And leading that evolution is MFB’s Strategy Group, which uses critical tools, such as pilot programs, policy, grantmaking, and measurement and evaluation, to enhance existing programs with new ideas and partnerships that expand food access and address the underlying causes of food insecurity for more Marylanders.

“The Strategy Group was formed to improve outcomes and put more organizational resources toward creating pathways out of hunger — work that started back in 2018. Now, in 2022, we are in an incredibly strong position to produce positive results from each of MFB 3.0’s strategic pillars.”
