We've been open for a little over a year and a half, and over 26,000 meals have been served or given out.

As of July 2016, Somerset County census was 25,928. God has made it possible that we have been able to provide over 26,000 meals since we opened January 2016. This is the equivalent to one meal to everyone in Somerset County. To God be all the glory! Thanks so much to all the support from everyone; we couldn't do what we do without you. 


We are now OPEN on Fridays and Saturdays from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm.

These pictures are from the evening before we opened. Pastor Tim Shawyer did a prayer of dedication and we got things ready for Friday's opening. 

These are pictures from Friday and Saturday; our first two nights open.

We are feeding the hungry by fulfilling God's commission of John 21:17 .


Eastern Shore Hunger in Numbers

  • More than 46,000 individuals on the Eastern Shore are food-insecure.

  • Over a third of that food-insecure population are children—more than 16,000.

  • The MFB – Eastern Shore Branch distributed 5.2 million meals in FY 2015.

  • Still, hungry families on the Eastern Shore miss nearly 8.5 million meals each year.
