The Heritage Food Pantry is adding another day to their operation, and is taking measures to protect customers amid the coronavirus crisis.
New hours are Tuesday and Friday, 9:30-11:30 am, ANYONE in need of food can drive through the parking lot of Heritage Baptist Church (1740 Forest Drive, Annapolis), stay in your car, show your identification (driver’s license, passport, a bill… anything with name/address) to their staff, answer a few questions required by Maryland Food Bank (are you a veteran? How many in your household? etc) and you will receive food, pre-bagged. You will not have to get out of your car and our volunteers practice strict sanitation practices.
NO ONE will be turned away without food as long as supplies last. There is no income requirement. With so many in the restaurant and retail sector out of work, this can be a big help until everything becomes more stable.
There is also a baby pantry stocked with infant formula, diapers, etc. Frozen meat. Canned fruit and vegetables. Sorry, no toilet paper at this time!
Heritage has run a food pantry for over 25 years and recently expanded the pantry space.
