The Hope Center of Maryland distributes food and non food essentials to a network of local beneficiaries such as food pantries, churches, recovery programs, senior living communities and other community based programs so they can provide these items to their clients in need. The HOPE Center assists 678 individuals on a monthly basis.
Please call to make arrangements for a pick up of food from you if you'd like. Please call us before you come to drop off food items.
ProducePedia is a free resource that covers the types of fresh produce that can be delivered to food pantries. Each entry includes information on color, taste, and possible uses. People unfamiliar with the vegetable or fruit will learn how to use it, and those who are familiar with it still might learn a fun fact or two!
The Cooperative Extension sites have a wealth of information for any backyard gardener. Once you go to the site (each one if very different from the others) look for a link for “homes and gardens”, “landscape”, “consumer horticulture”, etc. to find information on improving your backyard garden. Neighboring state sites may offer information your own state’s site lacks.
