The Western Maryland Food Bank (WMFB) was established in July 1983 to help bring additional food into the tri-state area to assist several organizations to
stretch their dollars. Since then, it has worked to enhance the food rescue and food distribution systems locally, addressing the invisible hunger in our community. Would you have ever dreamed that millions of pounds of supplemental foods could be disturbed to individuals in our area? Currently the WMFB provides support to over 100 organizations.
The WMFB has grown, step by step, from a half-day per month to a daily operation. Another blessing, with the help of many local supporters, state and federal agencies, and a large gift from the Weinberg Foundation, has been to expand from very limited storage ability to 20,000 feet of warehouse, refrigerated and administrative space. The Western Maryland Food Bank continues to serve our community, distributing products to our member agencies. These agencies serve 10,000-13,000 individuals monthly.
