The New Life Food Pantry's mission is to provide meals and food items to those suffering from drug addiction. We understand addiction can drive every aspect of life, often leading to crime to satisfy the physical demand for drugs. This focus far overrides concern for personal health and even daily needs.
We meet one of those needs by providing prepared meals and groceries to those receiving methadone or suboxone treatment at the Turning Point Clinic and others in need in our community.
The New Life Food Pantry (NLFP) began operations in East Baltimore in 2016. We have worked in partnership with the New Life Evangelical Church and the Turning Point Clinic to serve those suffering addiction and poverty.
Reverend Milton E. Williams, who founded the church, has been the leader in serving the Baltimore community for more than 20 years. He has made it his mission to serve those in poverty and those suffering from addiction to find, through faith, the strength to chart a new path for their future.
In 2003, he founded Turning Point Clinic to serve those suffering from heroin addiction with a program of medication, behavioral counseling, mental health services, and spiritual growth. The NLFP is a part of this holistic approach to serving the entire person. Our meals help to stabilize the individual and their families, allowing them to focus more fully on their recovery. Our partnership with the New Life Evangelical Church and the Turning Point Clinic helps fight the scourge of addiction and contributes to the safety and wellness of our community.
The New Life Food Pantry, Inc. is an independent 501 (c)(3) non- profit organization. We are governed by a Board of Directors whose backgrounds include the creation and management of large community organizations, national and local programs, finance and financial management.
