Community Pantry

The Food Pantry


As an organization, we value meeting the basic needs of the community because no one should have to wonder where their next meal is coming from. One of our longest tenured programs, The Door’s Food Pantry has served the community year-round, providing a once-a-month emergency food basket to individuals and families in need, continuously, for as long as they need support.


Since 2005, valuable partners like First Baptist Church of Pimlico and the Maryland Food Bank have assisted The Food Pantry in providing more than 5,000 food baskets to families in need, including holiday baskets. Our goal for 2015 – 2020 is to provide approximately double that amount to continue the goal of serving those in need.

  • Food baskets are available Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1 p.m. – 2 p.m. (Sept-June), 10 a.m.-11 a.m. (July-Aug)
  • We provide special holiday baskets around Thanksgiving and Christmas
  • Food baskets include non-perishables, bread and meat

(Each guest is eligible to receive one food basket per month. One form of identification is required.)


This program is in need of your help and prayers, since it is always a challenge to provide essentials to those in need and any support that you can offer is appreciated. Please support our organization with a tax-deductible contribution that will go directly to purchase food to serve those in need. Or, feel free to drop off non-perishable food items such as canned goods and boxed products to The Door at 219 North Chester Street, Baltimore, Maryland 21231.
