Sudlersville Food Pantry Critically Short of Food for Winter Season

The Sudlersville Food Pantry, housed at Calvary-Asbury United Methodist Church in Sudlersville has nearly empty shelves and is in desperate need of donations. The pantry serves an average of 65 families on a monthly basis, 12 months a year. This Thanksgiving season that number is expected to nearly double to 120 families. Says food pantry coordinator Billie Carroll, “We are providing food for more families in our area than ever and our shelves are nearly empty right now.” The Sudlersville Food Pantry is the only pantry serving residents of Northern Queen Anne’s County.

On Saturday, November 19th from 10 AM until Noon, the Sudlersville Youth Group together with the food pantry volunteers will be conducting a Thanksgiving food drive at Calvary-Asbury UMC. Items that are collected are used to provide an additional Thanksgiving food basket, in addition to the regular November food package. Families receive a turkey and all the fixings that go with a traditional Thanksgiving meal. The cost of this project is over $2000.00, in addition to the monthly food expenses the food pantry incurs throughout the year.

The youth group is asking for community help by providing any of the following items: 10-15 pound turkey, pie, stuffing, green beans, mashed potato, gravy, sweet potato, or cranberry sauce. Any additional non-perishable items would be very much welcomed to help stock the food pantry through the winter season when demand is at its highest. Any items may be dropped off on Saturday, November 19th between 10 AM and Noon at Calvary-Asbury UMC, 103 North Church St, Sudlersville. Cash donations are welcome in lieu of food items. Checks can be made payable to “Sudlersville Food Pantry” and mailed to PO Box 202, Sudlersville, MD 21668.  All donations are welcome and appreciated.
