MISSION

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 treatment at the Turning Point Clinic and others in need in our community.

OUR STORY

Our food programs are managed by the New Life Evangelical Baptist Church which has served the community for over twenty years. Rev. Milton Williams, founder of the Church, has made it his mission to serve those in poverty and help them find, through faith, the strength to chart a new path for their future.

The epidemic of opioid addiction in Baltimore led Reverend Williams to the founding in 2003 of the Turning Point Clinic to serve the growing number of those suffering from this debilitating condition and to help stabilize and contain violence in the larger community.

Turning Point provides medication assisted treatment combined with counseling and other supportive services. The New Life Food Pantry is a part of this holistic approach that emphasizes treatment of the entire person, not just the addiction. Our meals help to stabilize the individual and enable them to participate more fully in the counseling, mental health and other services of an individualized treatment program.

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.
