Mondays and Fridays are the new food distribution days at the St. Michaels Community Center in St. Michaels. The program serves people in need of food assistance, and is part of the St. Vincent de Paul Society of Easton’s outreach with the Maryland Food Bank.
Distribution includes fresh produce, meats, dairy products, and more, and is available on Mondays from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., and on Fridays from 12:30 p.m. to 2 p.m. at SMCC’s 103 Railroad Ave. location.
SMCC’s Community Cafe will also be open from 4 to 7 p.m. on Mondays, and Fridays from 11 to 3 p.m., where people can pay what they can—if they can—for a nutritious meal. SMCC’s Treasure Cove Thrift Shop will now be open on Mondays from noon to 7 p.m., and Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
SMCC also hosts community Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas dinners each year, as part of its mission to promote and provide quality activities and services that will contribute to the physical, emotional, and social well-being of the community.
The Maryland Food Bank’s mission is to feed people, strengthen communities, and end hunger for more Marylanders through an extensive network of community and organizational partners distributing food across the state. More is at mdfoodbank.org.
Donations to SMCC and proceeds from the Treasure Cove Thrift Shop in St. Michaels, Md. help the nonprofit provide year-round programs, services, and community events for people from throughout the Bay Hundred area, with more at stmichaelscc.org.
