Maryland Food Bank’s COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Efforts

As essential second responders, the Maryland Food Bank is working diligently to continue core operations amidst this public health crisis. For 40 years, we’ve served as the hub of the food assistance safety net, and we will continue to be here for our neighbors in need, especially during times of uncertainty.

With the closure of schools and businesses, as well as social distancing, an increasing number of Marylanders are at risk of losing income and will look to our partners for help, putting a further strain on the safety net.

We have the experience, infrastructure, and expertise to help Maryland navigate through these difficult times, but it will require additional resources. You can help:
