Help Support the Maryland Food Bank

Inflation has hit Marylanders with such force that the average household is spending nearly $500 more per month to purchase the same goods and services as they did a year ago—and the lowest-income households are being hit the hardest. A staggering one-third of Marylanders are at risk of facing hunger this year, and many of them are seeking assistance for the very first time. We need YOU to help the Maryland Food Bank - Western Branch meet this growing need.

More than 43,500 individuals in the Western Branch service area are food-insecure. Of those struggling with hunger, more than 18,000 are children.

The Maryland Food Bank – Western Branch distributes food to four counties in Western Maryland: Washington, Frederick, Allegany, Garrett.


Thank you for your support to the Maryland Food Bank, your monetary donation will have TWICE THE IMPACT!

Antietam Broadband will match donations made now through November 30, 2023.

Antietam Broadband is matching funds up to $5,000 total.
