Mobile Med now has an East Montgomery clinic at 3300 Briggs Chaney Road in Silver Spring!
Previously, Mobile Med took a van to that site but the county has made a nice clinic space with 5 exam rooms available for our use. This is a high needs area with French-speaking African patients and a variety of other population groups. Their multilingual staff and volunteers are well prepared to work with the uninsured individuals who come there for primary health care.
Mobile Med clinic services are offered every Thursday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (Walk-In 8:00 am -12:00 pm and by appointment only 12:00 pm -5:00 pm) at the Eastern Montgomery Regional Services Center, 3300 Briggs Chaney Road, Silver Spring in Maryland.
For over forty years, the mission of MobileMed's volunteers, supporters and staff has been to provide quality health care to the uninsured, low income, working poor and homeless in Montgomery County, Maryland. All patients who arrive at the beginning of the clinic session are assessed by the clinic nurse. Mobile Med makes every effort to see all walk-in patients, depending upon the volume of people seeking care on a particular day.
Patients are seen by the provider in an order based upon: their medical need; the need for and availability of an interpreter and order of arrival.

Manna Food Center, a nonprofit organization, strives to eliminate hunger in Montgomery County through food distribution, education, and advocacy.
Manna Food Center is the main food bank in Montgomery County, and nearly every county nonprofit organization relies on Manna to provide essential food to their clients. Manna is that rare organization that actually achieves synergy by bringing together government, corporations, nonprofit organizations, schools, faith-based organizations, community groups, and individuals with the common cause of fighting hunger in Montgomery County.
Manna has three primary programs:
Food Distribution to Families - Manna's regular food distribution program feeds approximately 3,300 families each month. Every client is referred to Manna through one of our partnerships with 360 different organizations. Clients may pick up food every 30 days at one of Manna's distribution sites located all across Montgomery County. They receive a 3-5 day supply of perishable and shelf-stable food. We also deliver food directly to several low-income apartment complexes and community centers across the county.
Smart Sacks - In 2005, Manna founded Smart Sacks which partners Manna, local businesses and organizations with elementary schools. Together we provide the children with backpacks full of kid-friendly food every Friday so they have food on the weekends when there are no school meals to sustain them.
Food Distribution to Agencies - Manna also provides food to dozens of Montgomery County agencies including soup kitchens, food pantries, group homes, and emergency shelters throughout Montgomery County. These agencies have limited funds to address the root causes of poverty and hunger.
