Volunteers are needed weekly for our mobile food pantry team that travels throughout Anne Arundel County to give groceries in high food deprived areas. From elderly on a fixed income, to homeless, to families in need because of an unexpected circumstance, we meet them where they are to provide nourishment. In Anne Arundel County the homeless often suffer from the lack of ability to access even the most basic needs. Our mobile service goes out to multiple locations where the homeless live to administer the services. Our trailer is fully portable and can literally pull up anywhere without needing access to power. We are also able to use this trailer as disaster relief service unit as needed. In addition, we have just started our Afterschool Program held on Wednesday and Thursday from 2:30-5:00 p.m. – both days at a library; contact the office for more info about the Afterschool Program at [email protected]. Questions? Contact Derric Wright at 410-672-4260 or [email protected]. See website at http://i5serve.com.
