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.
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.
Offers culinary training to low-income individuals, who learn while producing meals for families in need.
Engages farms across the state in a partnership to provide hungry Marylanders with fresh, local produce.
Enables us to transport large amounts of food to areas where other forms of hunger relief are scarce.
Sends outreach workers to community centers to help eligible Marylanders apply for food assistance.
Targets seniors struggling with hunger in Baltimore City and provides them with nutritious food each month.
Enables us to distribute emergency food boxes from our warehouse to city residents who qualify for the service.
Enables us to find and move nutritious foods to food-insecure communities throughout the state.
