Johns Hopkins Health Plans has awarded a $15,000 grant to Gaithersburg HELP, an organization whose mission is to provide individuals and families in the Gaithersburg area with assistance for basic needs. The grant will be used to purchase and distribute nutritious foods in the Montgomery Village and Gaithersburg area, helping 150 families overcome food insecurity.

Founded in 1968, Gaithersburg HELP provides support to address issues such as food insecurity, transportation and prescription medication. Gaithersburg HELP’s food pantry is visited by thousands of families every year. One of the things that sets their organization apart from other assistance programs is their focus on providing a variety of fresh foods and formula for families with young children.

We recognize the urgency of food insecurity in our communities and are proud to be a part of Gaitherburg HELP’s mission. This grant illustrates our ongoing commitment to eliminating this needless problem.
