Food Drive

Our online food drive option allows us to make bulk purchases at incredible savings. For example, with a $20 donation, we can purchase 100 pounds of food, enough to feed a family of four for one week. With a $100 donation, we can feed them for an entire month. Every dollar matters.

In order to donate through the Virtual Food Drive, you'll need to login to your Pulse account. Click here to login or register for a new account. 

It’s about changing lives . . .

Our Food Pantry builds relationships with people by providing supplemental food support, resource referrals and educational opportunities to families living throughout Southern Maryland.

And making a difference . . .

In 2017, volunteers distributed over 608,000 pounds of non-perishable goods, frozen foods and fresh produce to an average of 700 families per week. As we head into 2018, there is still a need. Your support makes it possible!
