We all have seasons in our lives when we could use the help and support of others. We understand that you may be going through that season, and we want to serve you in any way that we can. If you are in need of food or cannot afford groceries, please visit the Bridgeway Community Cupboard.
Through partnerships with the Howard County Food Bank, the Maryland Food Bank, and donations from our church and other organizations, the Community Cupboard is able to provide free groceries to those in need. Guests visiting the Cupboard shop for a variety of food items, filling an allotted number of grocery bags, based on family size. Additionally, the Community Cupboard offers annual Thanksgiving meals to families in need throughout our community.
The Community Cupboard operates at both our Columbia and Owings Mills/Reisterstown campuses, and are both open on Sundays immediately following services to both those in the community and those attending services, until 30 to 40 minutes following each service.
The entrance to the Community Cupboard is on the southeast corner of Columbia Campus main building, which is on the opposite corner from the entrance, and can be identified by burgundy awning and red door, on which a sign reads Community Cupboard. In addition to being open after each service, this Cupboard is also open on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month from 10:00am - noon, and is open to the community.
The entrance to the Community Cupboard is located off the rear parking lot through the left-side double doors. Once inside, proceed to the second door on the left, on which you'll find a sign reading, Community Cupboard. This Cupboard is open immediately after each service.
We want everyone in our community to have access to quality food, in addition to the other services Bridgeway offers. We like to say, we don't want anyone to leave our Bridgeway services hungry — neither spiritually nor physically. We encourage you to access the services offered by the Community Cupboard.
