In 2017, the Food Council released the first edition of The Montgomery County Food Assistance Resource Directory. This resource aims to more effectively connect people who seek food assistance services with those who provide them, as well as create stronger connectivity between the organizations providing food assistance resources in our County. In addition to this print resource, we’ve created a searchable database and interactive map, and may potentially create a mobile application, for the use of all who access, give referrals to, or provide these services.

Feel free to contact Amanda Nesher ( with any questions or comments.
