2401 East North Avenue
Baltimore, MD 21213
Open Monday-Friday: 9 am -- 3:45 pm
Breakfast and lunch are served daily to encourage residents with substance abuse disorders to focus more fully on their recovery while undergoing treatment at Turning Point Clinic, a mission-based nonprofit substance abuse clinic that serves more than 2,000 clients each day. The doors are open to anyone who needs help -- with or without insurance. One in five patients at Turning Point are homeless and would not eat without support from the New Life Food Pantry.
The New Life Food Pantry distributes emergency food boxes to residents in need and also buys, assembles, and distributes bags of groceries to those referred to us by the 2-1-1 Maryland program, the United Way Helpline and Manna House. We also give food bags to senior citizens, very low-income residents, the homeless, and patients from Turning Point Clinic who show a continued commitment to recovering from their substance abuse disorders.
New Life Food Pantry is based in an area of Baltimore deemed to be a "food desert" -- meaning there are no nearby grocery stores or farmers markets where residents can buy food. We solve that problem by hosting community markets and Pantries On the Go where the fresh produce and other food we receive from the Maryland Food Bank and other generous donors is distributed to needy residents.
