Crossroads Community Food Network

…is working to improve community health through local food access programs and education for at-risk populations in Maryland’s Takoma/Langley Crossroads area and beyond. Read more about our mission…

Through our programs,

…we aim to improve access to fresh, local, healthy food through innovative programs and models mutually supportive of those who grow our food and those who eat it. Learn more about these programs here.

But we need YOUR help 

…to keep our programs going strong and to keep fresh food on the table for families and seniors! With your contribution, we can keep our Fresh Checks program alive throughout the market season. Click here to see the effect that your contribution can have on the Crossroads community.

Please contact us to get involved on a corporate level – we’d love to have you as a “Broccoli” or “Garlic” level sponsor!

Want to see what it’s like to work at Crossroads? Consider becoming a volunteer to get involved with one of our many programs.
