Baltimore North Cluster Food Bank and Community Clothing Closet
The Baltimore North Cluster Food Bank, an outreach ministry of 18 Cluster UM Churches, began in the early 1980's at Bentley Springs UMC. Moving in 1998 to the present location on the grounds of Pine Grove UMC, it is a volunteer service to those in need in the greater community. A brief, confidential interview is required prior to being served.
