We are so grateful to everyone who was able to donate food or money for our first food drive on Saturday, May 7 at the Giant Food in the Village of River Hill. Thank you to the generosity of our Food Warriors, we were able to collect over 126 pounds of gluten free and allergy friendly food for the Howard County Food Bank.
The food drive kicks off our new partnership with the Howard County Food Bank, a program of the Community Action Council of Howard County. With the assistance of Advisory Council member, Maureen Burke, owner of One Dish Cuisine, we will be working with them to provide safe food options for our neighbors in need.
Speaking of One Dish Cuisine, they will be serving as a permanent collection point for gluten free and allergy friendly food. Look for the clear, plastic bin by the front door of their business. You can drop off food donations during One Dish Cuisine's business hours. Financial contributions to the S.A.F.E. Food Pantry can be made on our website.
We have a lot of exciting events coming up in June. Visit our Calendar of Events for more information. We will be announcing another food drive soon.
The S.A.F.E. Food Pantry is an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) organization based in Howard County, Maryland.
