The Emergency Food Assistance Program is a U.S.
Department of Agriculture food supplemental program
administered through the Maryland Food Bank (MFB),
under contract with the Maryland Department of Human
Resources (DHR), and implemented by our agency for
Charles, Calvert, and St. Mary’s counties.
In FY18 the agency served nineteen (19) food pantries
and (1) shelter. Food is received once per month into the
warehouse located in Calvert County and distributed to
the authorized sites. They, in turn, distribute the food to
qualified, low-income households throughout the three
counties. Hundreds of volunteers assist this process.
This program allows SMTCCAC to continue in its capacity
as link in the safety net for families facing food insecurity.
