Many of our neighbors are deeply entrenched in poverty, and over 60,000 of them are unsure of where or when they will get their next meal. The Montgomery County Food Security Plan was released in 2017, and serves as the blueprint for how every local business, nonprofit, government agency and resident can contribute to ensuring all County residents have access to sufficient, nutritious food.

 

Our network includes more than 75 food assistance organizations and hundreds of food security stakeholders who convene on a bi-weekly basis to share best practices, resources and community needs.  The Food Council regularly leads conversations among representatives of local and state government agencies, nonprofit partners, and community members, to identify opportunities to reduce food insecurity in Montgomery County.
