2021 – We couldn’t have done it without you!
We are so overwhelmed by the generosity of our community! Thanks to supporters like you, over the past year we were able to feed approximately 62,500 Anne Arundel County residents every month.
As we ring in the New Year, we want to thank you for helping us meet Crosby Marketing‘s $25,000 match challenge before the end of 2021! Your support fuels our work to eliminate food insecurity here in Anne Arundel County.
As the pandemic continues to impact our under-resourced neighbors, in 2022 we remain committed to providing free, nutritious food to our neighbors experiencing food insecurity.
Thank you for your kindness and compassion. Because of supporters like you, we were able to accomplish the following during our last fiscal year:
- Distribute 5.8 million pounds of food to our network of over 70 Member Agencies at no cost to them, which was 3.2 million pounds more than our previous fiscal year!
- Feed approximately 62,500 Anne Arundel County residents each month, 52% of whom had never accessed our pantries previously.
- Provide four healthy meals and snacks each weekend and on holidays to 6,536 Anne Arundel County students through our Backpack Buddies Program.
- Distribute high-demand items that include diapers, formula, and baby food to 1,886 families visiting our Baby Pantries.
If you didn’t get a chance to make your end-of-year gift, please consider giving now to help your neighbors in need have access to nutritious food in the New Year.
