Programs and Initiatives for March 2024
Throughout March, the food bank focuses attention on nutrition education. Join us in our mission to provide healthy and nutritious food for our neighbors in need.
Save the Date for Feeding Hope 2024
For its third year, the Anne Arundel County Food Bank will host Feeding Hope, a casual spring garden party mixed up with a mini-food and drink festival. More than 200 food bank supporters gather at Davidsonville’s Homestead Gardens to raise funds to help our neighbors in need fill their tables with fresh, nutritious food. Guests enjoy small bites and tastes from a variety of local restaurants and food shops, sip on wines, brews, and cocktails, and dance along to live music from Red Betty & The Ruckus. Ticket sales begin April 3.
Midshipman Action Group 2023 Food Drive Focuses on Healthy Options
Each November, the U.S. Naval Academy's Midshipman Action Group springs into action with a food drive benefiting the Anne Arundel County Food Bank. This year, we tasked these amazing young men and women with a challenge: focus their efforts on collecting healthy, nutritious shelf-stable foods that are low in sodium, sugar, and preservatives and high in fiber. The Midshipman Action Group met these challenges head-on, bringing in a record number of healthy food and basic necessities for our neighbors in need here in Anne Arundel County.
