Nonperishable food and toiletry donations may be left in our outdoor food bin 24/7. It is a standing Rubbermaid bin directly behind the SPAN house. Just follow the gravel driveway.

We have limited refrigerator and freezer space for donations of meat and dairy products, as long as they are unexpired or were frozen before the expiration date. Please email [email protected] first to make sure we have room, and to coordinate a drop-off time.

Don't feel like going shopping? SPAN's need for financial support is ongoing. Please consider making a financial donation to SPAN through this link. Your financial donation will be used to help local families with utility turnoffs, court-ordered evictions and prescription/medical bills.


PLEASE NOTE: We will no longer be accepting expired food. We only distribute unopened and unexpired food. In the past we donated all of our expired food to the Anne Arundel County Food Bank, but their policy has changed, and they will no longer accept it.

    If I wanted to donate via Walmart or Costco, and arrange for a delivery to SPAN, how would I do this? What would be the best times for SPAN to receive a delivery? Should I arrange a date with SPAN in advance, and then place an online order? Please advise!
