The Food Pantry provides food and supplies to families and individuals each month. All food items are supplied either through government funding or through the generosity of local businesses, farms and donors. At the Food Pantry, we serve approximately 250 families a month. Besides providing food, food pantry employees and volunteers work to educate families about good nutrition and healthy eating, and help connect them to additional services as needed.
The Thrift Shop offers affordable, quality clothing, and household items.

At Martin’s House (SMH), an emergency shelter for families, we provide a safe haven for families struggling with homelessness.

To qualify for emergency food, you must be a resident of Caroline County. New customers may demonstrate proof of residence with either a driver’s license or another document that shows their address. In addition, all new customers must provide proof of birth dates and social security cards for all household members, and proof of household income.
If you already qualify for Temporary Cash Assistance, Food Stamps, Medical Assistance, or Unemployment you are most likely within the income guidelines.
The amount of income varies by the size of the household. If qualified, the size of your household also determines the amount of food you will receive. Qualified clients may receive food once each month.
