We see St Mary’s Caring Soup Kitchen as a vehicle which is only able to move it when fueled by generous people in our community.  With your support we are able to continue our efforts to improve our community through the gift of nutrition.  

Your donations, whether financial or food related are what puts the word CARING in our name.  St. Mary's Caring Soup Kitchen is designated by the IRS as a 501(c) (3).  (FEIN 52-2093621)  We are also registered with the state of Maryland as a charitable  tax exempt organization.  All donations are welcomed and appreciated.

St Mary's Caring Soup Kitchen has a strong commitment to donor's privacy rights.  Consistent with that commitment we hereby guarantee we will not sell or trade our donors personal contact information with anyone else nor will we send mailings on behalf of other organizations.

Our team is also working on adding other ways you can help support us. i.e. in honor and memorial tributes, monthly giving, and create your own fundraiser.  

Family Buddy Program

Our Family Buddy program helps individuals easily take a stand against childhood hunger.  Did you know a $70 weekly 

donation provides  enough groceries to feed a family of four?  By becoming a Family Buddy, you can choose to make a one week donation of $70 or provide groceries for an entire month for a $280 donation. Your support will help build a healthier future for the poorest members of our community.
