Providing food and financial assistance for those in need in the Bay Hundred area.

The Tilghman Food Pantry is part of the Helping Hands ministry of TMC. The Pantry has been operating since approximately 2008, thanks to the generous cash and food donations from the community and  to its dedicated volunteers.  For several years, Empty Bowls, a non-profit organization in Easton has provided the Pantry with a substantial annual gift, as well.

In addition to food donations, checks are certainly welcome, made out to ‘Helping Hands’ and mailed to TMC, P.O. Box 192, Tilghman.

Meals Available To Those In Need

Free Meals from Tilghman Methodist Church.

The meal includes entrée, sides, fresh fruit, homemade soup, dinner salad, bread/roll, and dessert.

Meals are prepared once a week on Wednesdays and are available for pick up at 4 pm or we will deliver in the Tilghman area. This is for anyone needing help with nutritious prepared food due to health, family, or financial situations.

Must sign up ahead of time. Call Susan at 410-886-9863 to get on the list.

Financial Assistance

Helping Hands can provide limited financial assistance to help pay utility, medical, and other basic bills. If you suspect a neighbor is in great need please call Pastor David Kelley at 410-886-2045 
or 410-886-2197.

May God bless you.

Food Bank

TMC maintains a Food Bank at the church where donated food is available to needy individuals and families in the Bay Hundred area.  Typically, the Pantry has canned and packaged foods, milk and eggs, and some fresh meat, vegetables and fruit.

Volunteers work tirelessly to gather money and food donations, shop for the food, store pantry supplies and shuffle the volunteer staffing schedule. If you can, donate and deliver perishable and non-perishable food donations to the Pantry. 

Use the south door to the TMC Annex during operating hours:  

  • Wednesdays, 3:00 to 6:00 PM

Tilghman Elementary School collected and delivered food to the Food Bank (February, 2022).

The Pay it Forward class from the Tilghman After School Kids (TASK) visited the Tilghman food pantry Thursday, 10-18-18. They brought food donations, learned about how the pantry works, and made posters about the pantry to post around the island.
