Chesapeake Cares Food Pantry established 2001
We are a local feeding organization that distributes an average of 15,000 pounds of food to 1,100 families every week.
Quote from pantry client, "The food has helped when my family was hungry and I did not know where to turn for help."
But we are more than a bag of groceries, we are creating relationships that change individual's lives.
Our partnership with Calvert Health allows us to provide routine health screenings for those who would otherwise not receive medical care.
During the summer, we work with autistic youth in our community to give them practical hands-on serving opportunities that allow them to volunteer and feel accomplished.
Quotes from volunteers, "It is fun to come here and do stuff for other people." Another volunteer quote, "It feels good to help the community."
Quote from pantry client, "The Chesapeake Cares Food Pantry has helped plenty with care and kindness in lifting my spirits."
Quote from pantry client, "When I did not have enough money to buy groceries, I felt like I was always behind in life. Now I am able to feed my family and save money for other things."
Quote from pantry client, "It is great to have food and be in a safe spot like the Food Pantry."
