Nonprofit Volunteer Program: MidShore Meals til Monday (Dorchester)
MidShore Meals til Monday was started by Leslie Bishop in April, 2017. This nonprofit organization, a component fund of the Mid-Shore Community Foundation, sends home supplemental weekend food for food-insecure students attending Dorchester County Public Schools. Starting with 25 children at one school, Meals til Monday has grown to having initiatives in every school in Dorchester County. In addition to the weekend bags (Meals til Monday), “Meals til Morning” bags of an overnight meal are provided for high school students. All students who receive our bags are given dental supplies and warm hats and gloves in the winter. We stock our school partners with emergency food supplies for their families. We sponsor a weekly Farmer’s Market and food pantry in Vienna, Md, hold large food distributions several times each month for the entire community, and provide food resources to anyone who needs food assistance. We are an all-volunteer organization comprised of over 150 people of diverse backgrounds all dedicated to “Working to end childhood hunger on the Mid-Shore and beyond.” MidShore Meals til Monday was selected for the Governor’s Service Award in the 2021 Nonprofit Volunteer Program category.
