About

Looking for more ways to fight hunger in Maryland? Be a Resource Navigator at Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) sites in Montgomery County this summer and fall!

Maryland Hunger Solutions is partnering with the Montgomery County Community Action Agency to train volunteers in food insecurity and invite them to serve at VITA sites in two locations this summer and fall. Interested individuals will learn about ways they can help Maryland families access healthy and nutritious foods.

We need volunteers on the following days from June through October:

Tuesdays 11 AM to 4 PM
TESS Center: 8513 Piney Branch Road Silver Spring, MD 20901

Fridays 11 AM to 4 PM
Mid County Regional Center, Wheaton

Resource Navigators will screen residents eligibility for food and n utrition programs-including the Food Supplement Program (FSP, formerly food stamps), also known as SNAP.


As a Resource Navigator, you may also:

-Learn more about hunger

-Receive training to help people to access nutrition programs and local food resources

-Assist individuals in applying for the Food Suipplement Program (FSP, formally Food Stamps, federally SNAP)
