CEFM Network received a generous $3,500 grant from the Maryland Food Bank this summer. The Maryland Food Bank graciously delivered 4,500 pounds of non-perishable food items that included peanut butter, jelly, fruit, corn, chicken soup, beef stew, macaroni and cheese, spaghetti, and more.
Additionally, recent donations from Catonsville Presbyterian, Catonsville United Methodist, St. Marks, St. Johns UCC, Salem Lutheran,Immanuel UCC, St. Agnes and the Catonsville Rotary have helped fill in the gaps in our food supplies. During the summer donations can be lean, and CEFM is often out of many food items. These timely donations helped fill many of the empty shelves.
