Baltimore Free Farm: They run something called Food Rescue Day where they distribute free food every Wednesday at noon.
Maryland Food Bank: Not sure if this is the right fit for you, but they do look for partners that can serve as pantries.
Baltimore Orchard Project: They grow fruit trees around the city and distribute them at various sites. I’m not sure their current capacity but you could try reaching out and seeing if they are looking for more distribution partners.
Gather Baltimore: $7 you can get a large blue bag (think IKEA blue bags) stuffed with a variety of produce. Folks need to follow them on Facebook to see what is available, but they could be a potential resource/connection/partner.
In this episode we talk to Councilman Zeke Cohen which leads into research on youth Summer employment.

Thanks for tuning into episode one of the I Love Humans podcast. There is a fairly lengthy explanation of the podcast attached to the trailer here.
In this episode we are looking at homelessness and care for individuals who are homeless. This episode barely scratches the surface of the topic, but we have to start somewhere.
In this episode Josh interviews his son Hayden, Kevin (homeless) and Kevin Lindamood who leads Healthcare for the Homeless. Josh's friend Albert is also interviewed.
Note: This is not a political or religious podcast, but political themes do come up along the way. It is our goal to surface rich information about people-care in Southeast Baltimore. Hopefully the listener can follow along with an empathetic ear as they encounter ideas they may not necessarily agree with.
Thanks for checking out the trailer for I Love Humans. (Subscribe on iTunes) This is a hyper local podcast focused on people-care in Southeast Baltimore. It is my objective to discover how different organizations are serving the most vulnerable of our community and to listen to the opinions of those receiving care. If everything goes as planned we will have 12 episodes that are released weekly on Thursday mornings.
This project was born out of a personal quest that I, Josh Turansky, undertook to understand people care in Southeast Baltimore. I am a pastor of a church in Fells Point, resident of Butcher's Hill, and manage the Compassion Center off Eastern Avenue (1706 Eastern Ave). Most of my week is spent caring for people in crisis. I am relatively new to the area and unfamiliar with how people are helped in the city.
This podcast is areligious and apolitical. I'm not saying that you will agree with all the comments made by me or our guests. But my premise is that caring for fellow humans does not require a specific religious affiliation or political affiliation.
In each episode I will attempt to uncover practical and concrete ways Southeast Baltimore residents can participate in people care. I'm also open to feedback and suggestions on what that care might look like.
I'm not a sound engineer by trade. I'm trying to learn the basics as fast as possible, but please bear with me as I learn to capture great audio and edit it.
If you like what you hear please recommend it to a friend, leave a review on iTunes, or share it on social media.
I want to thank my church for hosting the podcast and underwriting the cost of production. Haven City Church is the sole sponsor for this first season.
