SMADC’s Food Access Programs includes the Community Fridge program, and the Food Box Distribution program. These programs are currently seeking applications from agricultural producers in Charles County to sell and deliver their products for distribution to populations experiencing food insecurity in Charles County during the 2024 calendar year. 

SMADC’s Food Access programs strengthen Southern Maryland’s food economy by supporting farmers and providing better access to fresh, local, nutritious food for residents experiencing food insecurity. For more information, please click the buttons below for guidance and an application for farmers to sell their products to our programs.

SoMD Community Fridges

Local farmers are helping keep the new So MD Community Fridge stocked for our community. You can too!

A community fridge is a zero-barrier (no documentation required) free food source maintained and used by the community it serves. Fridges offer mutual support to reduce hunger and food waste, building a stronger and more resilient community.

You can find and/or donate fresh food, pantry staples, and personal care items to the fridge and food pantry at Christ Church La Plata located at 112 Charles St. La Plata, MD.
