those in need


We are a nonprofit 501(c)(3), all-volunteer food pantry and soup kitchen in Prince George's County, Maryland. We serve homeless and low-income people in the greater Laurel area. We operate entirely with private and public donations of food and financial and volunteer assistance.

Meal Kitchen:

Our greatest need is casseroles and cases of bottled water. We rely on donations to feed over 100 people a night. If you're able to cook and donate, please find details on how to help here. Donations accepted 4:15–5:15 every night.

Hunger isn't seasonal, which is why year-round food drives are so important. Our clients depend on your generosity. You can also devote a morning to stocking our pantry and meeting face-to-face the families we help.
