The next Food Distribution Event will take place on Saturday, February 21st from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Franciscan Center.
In partnership with the Maryland Food Bank, the Franciscan Center held its first Mobile Pantry Food Distribution Event in August 2013. Since that time, the Center has distributed tens of thousands of pounds of fresh food to area families and individuals. In 2014, the Center will host this event on a Saturday morning, every other month beginning in February.
Depending on the time of the year, Baltimore City residents may receive a variety of fresh produce including corn, green beans, squash and watermelon. During the colder months, canned goods and other non-perishable foods are offered as well.
