TOWSON, MD—Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski this week announced new resources to help residents locate food distribution sites and identify restaurants offering food pickup, carry-out, and delivery services.
“As we continue to respond to this rapidly evolving situation, we have to make sure our residents can access fundamental necessities—especially food,” Olszewski said. “We will continue to work around the clock to identify additional resources to provide food security for Baltimore County families during this challenging time.”
The new Food Distribution Sites Map has information about locations offering free meals for youth throughout Baltimore County. It includes locations operated by both the Baltimore County Department of Recreation and Parks PAL centers and Baltimore County Public Schools. Users can search for locations closest to where they live. The map will be updated as additional food resources become available for youth and other populations.
Officials also unveiled an online form to allow restaurants to self-report whether they are offering services during this time.
Restaurant operators can share their location and what services they are providing, and the data collected will populate an interactive online map that residents can search.
