Our Food Pantry is the largest portion of our outreach program and it distributes food to our patrons on the third Monday of each month from 9:30am-11:00am at the Parish House, 3600 Solomon's Island Rd, Edgewater, MD 21037.  The Parish Food Pantry distributes supplemental food to local families. The food includes canned good, fresh meat, milk, eggs, and, occasionally, fresh vegetables and fruit. 
The All Hallows Food Pantry is supported by contributions of food and funds. It is an official branch of the Anne Arundel County Food Bank. The County provides a large amount of the non-perishable items, which our volunteers pick up and transport from the County’s distribution site, to stock our shelves.  Using funds from the Parish,volunteers also shop for the perishable items we provide in our monthly distributions. 
The Food Pantry also provides special baskets for Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. For the Christmas season, our Food Pantry sponsors the Christmas gift of giving for the children of our regular patrons to make their Christmas a little special. The adults provide names and description of each child, and members of the Parish purchase gifts for each child.
