St Paul’s Hunger Ministry seeks to feed 100 families in the 20895 zip code. We serve families who struggle to make ends meet and put food on their tables. One thing we have learned: area food banks are desperate for help.
People respond well during the holiday season and food pantries fill to the brim. But as the first of the year unfolds, the need grows and the shelves empty. To meet this need, the Justice and Compassion Team invites you to contribute generously.
HOW TO DONATE
If you want to deliver food, donate groceries, make a financial contribution to the Hunger Ministry or volunteer,
contact the St. Paul's Hunger Ministry, at 301-933-7933 ext. 511 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We welcome non-perishable food, grocery store gift cards ($25), and financial donations.

You can help streamline our process by packing a full bag with everything a hungry family needs. Please attach a number to your filled bag so we know it's ready to distribute - no additional sorting or packing needed. You are also welcome to include a message to a family wishing them well.
