The Maryland Food Bank distributes food to every county in Maryland, with the exception of Prince George’s and Montgomery counties, which receive assistance from the Capital Area Food Bank.
The Maryland Food Bank’s Baltimore Office serves as our headquarters, housing administrative and programs staff, while also being the largest of our three warehouses. With 93,000 square feet, the Baltimore warehouse is the central hub for food distribution to central Maryland, as well as our branches in Western Maryland and on the Eastern Shore.
The Baltimore office holds more than 100 employees—about 80% of the food bank’s total workforce—and houses the majority of the Maryland Food Bank’s statewide campaigns and initiatives.
Hunger by the Numbers
Nearly 760,000 individuals are food insecure, or unable to consistently access nutritious food, in Maryland.
1 in 8 individuals in the Maryland Food Bank’s service area are food insecure.
In FY 2014, the Maryland Food Bank distributed nearly 37 million meals.
Even so, food-insecure families in the region miss more than 89 million meals each year.
The mission of the Maryland Food Bank is to lead the movement and nurture the belief that together we can improve the lives of Marylanders by ending hunger.
