The new branch will serve as a central distribution point for a network of more than 120 soup kitchens, pantries and shelters in Allegany, Frederick, Garrett and Washington counties.

The Maryland Food Bank has facilities in Baltimore and Salisbury with a total of nearly 107,000-square-feet of warehouse, refrigerator and freezer space.
