Washington County Maryland food pantries.

Depending on the agency, there may be an on-site pantry, a place that offer hygiene supplies, clothes, and holidays meals. Many other items may be given out as well from the food pantries.

The goal is to never turn anyone away. So even if a food bank can't give groceries or serve a meal, they will refer the prospective client to another service. As there may also be assistance from other programs, such as SNAP food stamps, USDA commodities, or WIC vouchers among others.
