What is The Maryland Food Bank?

The Maryland Food Bank is a nonprofit hunger-relief organization, leading the movement to end hunger throughout Maryland. For more than 35 years, the Maryland Food Bank has partnered with communities across the state to distribute food to individuals and families in need. Through carefully crafted programs, the food bank aims to meet the immediate needs of Marylanders while simultaneously working to find long term ways to reduce hunger statewide. Currently distributing about 79,000 meals per day—a total of about 29 million meals annually—the Maryland Food Bank will continue to expand its efforts until hunger ends.

The Maryland Food Bank operates from three facilities: one in Baltimore, one in Salisbury, and one in Hagerstown. Through our extensive network of soup kitchens, pantries and schools our branches distribute food throughout 22 counties, including Baltimore City, Somerset, Wicomico, and Washington County—some of the most food-insecure regions in Maryland.
