Helping the Hungry

"...and if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness and your night will become like noonday." - Isaiah 58:10, NIV

A key mission focus at HBC is reaching out to local families who suffer from hunger.  Not in Annapolis, you say? Despite the fact that we live in one of the weathiest states in the country, one in eight households is considered "food insecure." HBC volunteers reach out to these households through our Food Pantry and Backpack Buddies program. We are expanding our mission in 2014-15 with plans for a community garden. Read on for information on how you can join us in this endeavor.

Need Food Assistance?

Heritage Baptist Food Pantry is open every 

Tuesday & Thursday (except holidays) from 9-11 AM.

For more information, contact the church office at 410-263-6680.

How to help with the Food Pantry

Donate non-perishable food items at the church office, or put them in the green bucket labeled “Food for the Needy” in the church hallway near the nursery.  Remember: Do not bring outdated food.  Check the expiration dates.  Also needed: brown paper grocery bags.

 

Volunteer to work on the distribution days- Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9-11 AM.  We would be happy to work with you.  You can leave a message for our volunteer coordinator through the church office at 410-263-6680.


Backpack Buddies

Since 2009, The HBC Backpack Buddies program has worked with Georgetown East and Mills Parole Elementary Schools to help children in need. The idea is simple: many students who rely on free or reduced cost breakfast & lunch during the school week are not getting enough food to eat over the weekends. The schools identify students in need and each week during the school year, HBC volunteers pack and deliver ready-to-eat foods for those students to carry home Friday afternoon. Want to help us make a difference? You can volunteer to pack or deliver backpacks, provide needed food items or simply make a monetary gift to this program. For more information, contact the program coordinator through the church office at 410.263.6680
