To alleviate food insecurity in Anne Arundel County by partnering across our community to obtain and distribute nourishing food to our neighbors in need.
Anne Arundel County Food Bank was founded in 1986 to distribute food to community partners throughout Anne Arundel County. To this day, AACFB continues its commitment to providing free food and other critical services to under-resourced residents, working alongside county and state governments to address food insecurity throughout the County. The AACFB network of member agencies includes over 70 community-based member food pantries.
In the 1980s then the Anne Arundel Council of Community Services, an umbrella organization representing human service providers in Anne Arundel County, determined that a food bank was a necessary service.
