Maryland food banks.

Food pantries and banks in Maryland can provide low income and other struggling families with a number of resources including free food, canned good, government commodities and groceries. Each year tens of thousands of families and individuals in Maryland turn to these distribution centers in order to meet the nutritional needs of their families.

The centers listed below are just a sampling. Many other non-profits, churches, and other charities also help people in need. Many additional food banks and distributions centers are located in your county as well. If a location listed below is not near you, then call a nearby center or the number below to find information on other town and county specific assistance programs in Maryland.

It is also important to note that many of the pantries and food banks may also provide clothes, furniture, personal hygiene items, counseling, and other support. If a site can’t help you or is out out resources, ask for a referral. Most centers can also refer people to other charities and government programs, such as summer meals for children, WIC, and the Maryland food stamp program.
