St. John's Council #1622 continues to sponsor our monthly "SHARE OF WASHINGTON" Food Co-operative Distribution Site here in Frederick, MD. We first initiated our Frederick site in 1996 under the former "SHARE OF BALTIMORE" network.
SHARE CUSTOMERS: We offer the "whole community" an opportunity to buy one to four "Shares" of food per family, with the only request being that they pledge to have provided one hour of any volunteer service to the community. There are no maximum income restrictions, ALL members of the community are welcome to purchase reduced-cost "shares".
Each "share" is two grocery bags, worth up to $50, which costs only $26 (including a $1 transport fee from SHARE Washington). Food Stamps are accepted. The food is bought wholesale by the "Share of Washington" organization, and these savings are passed on due to the efforts of volunteers at the regional distribution sites (ours is here in Frederick) and local centers run by community groups like ours. This food is NOT "surplus" food. Each share provides a generous mix of frozen meats, fresh vegetables and other staples.
Upcoming 2023 distribution dates are: 1/21, 2/18, 3/25, 4/22, 5/20, 6/24, 7/22, 8/26, 9/23, 10/28, 11/18, 12/16.
Orders are due to Brian Duncan for 2023 on: 1/9, 2/6, 3/13, 4/10, 5/8, 6/12, 7/10, 8/14, 9/11, 10/16, 11/6, 12/4 .
