Help Mids Support the Anne Arundel County Food Bank

Every October, food drive collection boxes fill up throughout the hallways of Bancroft Hall. Midshipmen are taking the initiative to help an important program - Harvest for the Hungry.

4th Company midshipmen collected 2,770 pounds of food last year.

Harvest for the Hungry, a Midshipman Action Group (MAG) project, impacts lives across Anne Arundel County. The program, a partnership with the Anne Arundel Food Bank and Anne Arundel Public Schools, began seven years ago. Since that time, the Brigade of Midshipmen has collected more than 250,000 pounds of non-perishable food for the county’s food bank.

One in seven Anne Arundel families face a constant struggle against hunger, leaving one in three kids in Anne Arundel County food insecure. Hunger impacts many aspects of a child’s life including learning. The Brigade of Midshipmen hopes to make an immense impact on these statistics by providing hope for a better life.


As residents of Anne Arundel County will soon start preparing for the holiday season, the Midshipman Action Group would like to invite the entire Naval Academy community to join our initiative. Food boxes have been placed at six locations around the Naval Academy: MacDonough Hall, Dahlgren Hall (outside of Drydock Restaurant), the Naval Academy Chapel, the Jewish Chapel, Michelson Hall (1st Floor), and the Visitor’s Center.

Food drive collection will end Nov. 5, and all the food will be delivered to to the Anne Arundel County Food Bank by midshipman representatives.

  2. With proper meal planning, it's possible to save a significant amount of money on groceries throughout the week while also having less stress on what you're planning to eat for dinner. Lunch delivery PJ
