    Germantown Help- Emergency Food Delivery

    15 minutes

    average wait time


    Info

    Germantown HELP is a food pantry. We do not advertise our address, because it is not a place clients can come (just a little storage room). Our food is delivered to households in 20874 and 20876. People can self-refer by calling 301-482-1320 and leaving a message; we call people back in the order the messages are received. We currently deliver nonperishable items and milk, produce, eggs & bread.

    We are closed on most major holidays, but may be open during federal holidays, depending on volunteer availability. Severe weather will close us down for the safety of our delivery volunteers. People can receive a delivery about once a month; when we are very busy, it will be stretched a little further. There is NO GUARANTEE of delivery once a month. We do not schedule deliveries more than a day or two in advance. We will not leave food at the door if nobody is home, we have to see it go inside the door.

    • Requirements

      • Clients can receive grocery delivery maximum of once a month (not guaranteed)

  15. Do I need an appointment?

    Every location is different! Some places in Longdraft accept appointments, some require it, and others allow walk-ins. Please review all details on the resource page to understand how you should prepare for your visit.

  16. What kind of food do they have?

    Food pantries offer grocery-style items such as canned food, fresh produce, and dry goods like pasta or rice that you can cook yourself. Soup kitchens offer ready-to-eat items like hot meals or sandwiches. All of these locations may have different options on different days, so it is hard to tell what each one of them will offer any given day.

  17. Do they have vegetables?

    Pantries may have different options at different times, so it is hard to tell what each one of them will offer any given day. Most pantries in Longdraft do give out some form of vegetables, but they may be canned items.

  18. Do they have meat?

    Pantries may have different options on different days, so it’s hard to tell what each one of them will offer any given day.

  19. Any pantries open today?

    If you’ve signed up for personalized assistance through our text message helpline, please take a look at the links we’ve sent you! If none of the resources we’ve sent are open today, let us know and we can search for additional options. Here’s a list of everything in Longdraft that’s open today: Germantown Help- Emergency Food Delivery

  20. Where are you located?

    Because our work is mostly virtual, the Lemontree team works remotely, and we don’t have an office in Longdraft for in-person visits. You can always reach us by texting 90847 between 10am-6pm, every day of the week.
