Food bank plans to open on Friday in Lexington Park
The organization Feed St. Mary’s will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony today, Friday, Dec. 13, at 5 p.m., to open the new Feed St. Mary’s Food Bank, located at 46041 Signature Lane in Lexington Park, in the U-Haul building off Great Mills Road.
The purpose of Feed St. Mary’s Food Bank is to serve as a distribution center for local food pantries
and soup kitchens, according to a release. Before becoming fully operational, the food bank will start with a “trial run” in January involving two pantries, the Church of the Ascension and Good Samaritan.
Once this process assesses the logistics of becoming fully operational, other organizations will be added, according to the release.
