Feeding our Community

Edmonston's Food Pantry

Edmonston’s Food Pantry was Operation Arts second project created in partnership with the Town of Edmonston. Food insecurity is a huge problem in the United States and in Prince George’s County, one in seven people face food insecurity. To combat this crisis, the Town of Edmonston partnered with Operation Arts Foundation contractors Chyna & Charlie to create a standalone 24-hour accessible food pantry in their community. This food pantry is filled weekly. This project provides a simple and discreet way for people in need to get the support they require.

This project was created by the Town of Edmonston, The Handy Lad, and Your Destiny’s Dream
