Food Pantry

Our most recent food pantry distribution was a huge success. We had so many food donations from the Anne Arundel County Food Bank and donations from friends and neighbors. GROW Annapolis brought the freshest produce from their community gardens. #JustOneSweater distributed more sweaters and coats than you can imagine. We had books for everyone. And to top it all off, a brass band from the Eastport Volunteer Fire Company lifted everyone’s spirits. Thank you so much giving so generously through Eastport United Methodist. 

The next food pantry distributions will be at 11am on the third Saturday of each month:

January 16

February 20

Eastport United Methodist will continue to host a Winter food pantry, outside in the parking lot, following CDC Covid-19 guidelines, providing food and diapers on the third Saturday of each month at 11 am. Supplies are distributed on a "first-come first-served" basis as long as supplies last.

As we are seeing increased need in our community (due to COVID-19), we are doing our best to respond by increasing the frequency of the pantry.  As soon as the county food bank notifies us that food is ready to be picked up, we will update this webpage to let you know when it will be distributed.

Donating

We are currently in need of egg cartons and medium sized boxes. We receive large quantities of eggs from restaurant supply and need to divide them into reasonable quantities for families.

Because we are maintaining minimal operating conditions, the safest and most efficient way for us to collect food donations is through the Anne Arundel County Food Bank. We encourage you to donate in-kind or monetarily to them.

You may also give online to Eastport United Methodist to support the ongoing work in our neighborhood.
