Nearly 6% of Montgomery County residents — almost 64,000 people — are considered food insecure. To help address this, MHP is piloting a Food Assistance Volunteer Program, developing a team of volunteers to help our residents connect to food assistance resources including Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly Food Stamps). If you would like to volunteer with this opportunity, please check out the information below.
This program is made possible in part by the Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services, the Montgomery County Food Council, the Community Action Agency and Maryland Hunger Solutions.
