Food Assistance/Joseph A. Mattingly, Jr. Food Pantry

Food Assistance

MUM Food Assistance

Hunger is unfortunately an all too common problem for those working hard to make ends meet. To address hunger, MUM stocks a food pantry, and operates a mobile pantry, for clients who need food.

Food Assistance

No one in our society should go hungry, yet some of our clients do. Our pantries supplement our clients' food budgets with nonperishable items such as cereal, rice, beans, pasta, bottled juice, canned meats, vegetables, and fruit. Food is available once a month, up to 25 lbs. per household to clients living in one of these zip codes: 20906, 20902, 20853, 20895 and 20896.

MUM offers two pantry resources:
