End Hunger Warehouse will not only provide improved food supply and distribution to all of Southern Maryland, it will also expand our ability to deepen job training and healthy cooking programs.The groundbreaking work of the collaborative between Calvert County Government and End Hunger will create much needed office space where non-profits can work together to solve problems for county residents — truly a total community supported enterprise.
