The Thurmont Food Bank is grateful to the community, especially to the Town of Thurmont, for all the generosity and support of the Thurmont Food Bank.
Your help has been especially important this year due to the pandemic; loss of jobs, income, and housing; and because children are not receiving food at school. Each month, the food bank has given out 200-320 shopping carts full of much-needed food, including milk, eggs, meats, produce, bread, and canned and boxed goods. You have helped to feed people from Thurmont, Sabillasville, Cascade, Lewistown, Deerfield, Rocky Ridge, Mountaindale, Utica, Creagerstown, Graceham, Foxville, and the surrounding areas.
The Food Bank is a labor of love, sponsored by The Thurmont Ministerium’s member churches and supported by community groups, individuals, and the Town of Thurmont.
If you know someone who needs food, please tell them to come to the Thurmont Food Bank, located at 10 Frederick Road, on Tuesdays (5:00-7:30 p.m.) and Fridays (4:00-6:00 p.m.). Please do not arrive more than half an hour before they are open, and enter using the driveway across from the Post Office.
Christmas hams or turkeys will be given out starting on December 8. The food bank will be closed on December 25 and January 1.
