Maryland Food Bank Fast Facts:

As the only nonprofit built to feed hungry Marylanders statewide, the Maryland Food Bank (MFB) has taken decisive action since COVID-19 first emerged in the spring. Between March 1 and September 30, the MFB distributed nearly 36 million pounds of food, a 93% increase over last year's distribution rate during the same period.

From March 1 through September 30, the MFB has also distributed 200,245 Back Up Boxes, 30-pound emergency food boxes that serve as a "back up" in situations where MFB programs and regular distribution channels are not available; distributed 401,540 Grab & Go meals for kids and their families who have lost access to the meals they rely on due to closed schools; hosted 2,176 "Pantry on the Go" events – pop up events that deliver shelf stable food and fresh produce to areas that lack easy access to stationary food pantries.

The MFB is mostly in need of healthy non-perishable food items, including canned proteins like tuna, chicken and peanut butter, canned fruits and vegetables, shelf-stable milk, breakfast items, rice and pasta.
