End Hunger Month

Powerful Shot Of Sad Child

EVENT INFORMATION

The Maryland State Senate and Calvert County Board of Commissioners officially declared October as End Hunger In Calvert County Month. In partnership with our 73 Partner Feeding Organizations, End Hunger feeds 25,000 people every year, that equals 2 MILLION pounds of food distributed into Southern Maryland.

During the entire month of October, many businesses, schools, and individuals will be hosting food drives all over Calvert County! This is one way that you and your family can be involved in restocking our Partner Food Pantry shelves and show that as a county, we are UNITED behind the idea that hunger can be defeated.

Updated 2021 List will be coming in September 2021.

End Hunger has partnered with Bayside Auto Group for the month of October. For every car sold this month, Bayside is donating $50 to End Hunger In Calvert County. We can’t wait to see what we all do together to end hunger – for good.
