Important Update: Diaper Distribution Changes
Effective immediately, we are making changes to our diaper distribution program. Please take note of the following adjustments:
Eligibility: The diaper distribution will now be limited to children born between 2019 and 2023. This revision ensures that our resources are directed to those in the greatest need.
Please bring with you a copy of your (parent or guardian) ID as well as something with the child’s name and DOB on it (birth certificate, medical paperwork, insurance card).
We understand these modifications may impact some of our clients. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation during this transition. Our commitment to supporting families remains unwavering, and we will continue to explore ways to enhance our services.
Important Update: Home Delivery Program
Due to a recent reduction in resources, the So What Else Home Deliveries Program is now requiring all clients to fill out a form in order to continue receiving deliveries. Thank you for your understanding. Please fill out the form here: https://bit.ly/swedelivers.
If you have questions, please call Will Harmon at (301) 832-6272 to complete an initial questionnaire.
If you are a homebound individual and are unable to stop by our pantry or pop-up distributions due to a disability or lack of transportation, consider enrolling in our home delivery program!
Participants will receive one bag of food per week, the quantity and variety of which is subject to change based on supplies. Please note that this program is entirely volunteer-driven, so the days and times of your delivery are subject to change based on our volunteer capacity.
Due to high demand, you may be placed on a waitlist if you reside outside of our geographic zone, so please be patient as we take time to process your request.
Gaithersburg Food Distributions
While we were sad to leave our Lakeforest Mall pantry this year, we’re fortunate to still be able to support the Gaithersburg community with two So What Else food distribution sites in the area. If you are in need of food and previously attended the Lakeforest Mall Pantry, consider stopping by the following distributions:
Lakeforest Mall Commuter Lot: Every Wednesday from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm | 9670 Lost Knife Rd, Gaithersburg, MD 20877
Pathways Church: Every Thursday from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm | 200 W Diamond Ave, Gaithersburg, MD 20877
