My Brother’s Pantry is an inter-denominational food relief organization founded in 1986 to serve people on the Broadneck Peninsula of Anne Arundel County, MD. This unique food pantry provides monthly non-perishable food to more than 130 needy households, ranging from families with children to individual adults and senior citizens. My Brother’s Pantry is staffed entirely by volunteers from area congregations. Our church has been an active member of the pantry from the beginning. In order to serve families, the pantry relies on food donations and volunteers from member congregations, individual donations, local food drives and the Anne Arundel County Food Bank, as well as monetary donations from member congregations and the community. The pantry is located in the parking lot of the College Parkway Baptist Church on College Parkway. Each congregation is responsible for one to two distributions each year. When it is our church’s turn to distribute food, there are many jobs that must be done.
