Mary's Pantry is a food distribution serving Southern Maryland and currently coordinating services with Sacred Heart Catholic Church and Catholic Community Services.
We have two programs - our Saturday distribution and Pantry On The Go. The Saturday distribution is primarily non-perishable food. Pantry On The Go is fresh produce and meat distribution.
Mary's Pantry was founded by Mary Pugh many years before food banks existed. Mary saw a need in Southern Maryland, where she grew up, and started taking food donations at her home and delivering to those in need. The generosity of the volunteers and contributors of Sacred Heart Church, Southern Maryland Food Bank and Catholic Community Services has ensured that Mary's mission continues today.
