Donate Money

We greatly appreciate any monetary gifts from the community. We work hard to make sure every dollar is used to help those in need. Money is the best way to give because of the high food per dollar ratio and the flexibility to get whatever food or supplies we may be running low on at the moment.

Tax deductible monetary donations can be mailed to:

Elkridge Food Pantry and Garden
5646 Furnace Avenue
Elkridge, MD 21075

Please make checks payable to the Elkridge Food Pantry

Hot Dinners

We like to have hot meals available for our clients whenever we can. Groups have brought in everything from simple sandwiches to complete spaghetti dinners, and are welcome to either stay and serve or just drop off the meal at the beginning of the night.

If you are involved with a group that might be interested in preparing a meal one night, please contact us for more information and to set up a date.
Food Drives

If you are part of a group such as a church, scout troop, or company that is interested in holding a food drive, please contact us with any questions you have and so that we can provide a list of what we need specifically at that time. This is a great way to get involved in the community!
