The Catonsville Emergency Food Ministries began as a Food Pantry in the mid-1980s. When many churches became involved with the Pantry, the organization grew from it's humble, one-room ministry and was incorporated as the Catonsville Emergency Food Ministries, Inc. (CEFM).
As the years have gone by, our mission has changed with the addition of other types of assistance. Today, many types of emergency assistance are available, including:
- eviction prevention;
- medical help;
- utility cut-off prevention;
…and more are planned for the future.
