North Brentwood's government, the state and community groups foster Town programs.
There's always something interesting to do, for all age groups: from parents' night out, to teen activities, senior gatherings, and family events, such as holiday celebrations and North Brentwood Day (Town anniversary).
Below are just a few of our ongoing programs benefiting citizens, and making North Brentwood the kind of Town that inspires neighbors to support each other.
Free: SHARE Food Network
Our Town is a SHARE Food site.
For a FREE monthly food package, call Martha at 301.699.9699 x1223
Package pickups: on specified Friday, 12 pm at First Baptist Church, 4000 Wallace Rd (Church St door).
The Town pays for these valued food packages using American Rescue Plan funds. SHARE Food Network is part of Self Help and Resource Exchange, a 200-organization network of nonprofit community-building to: provide nutritious food to families and individuals at a reduced cost; promote volunteer service; and build partnerships with local groups.

Free: Summer Fun Learning Program

Pictured: During our last summer program (in 2019), participants visited the National Health and Medicine Museum, in Silver Spring. Each child made workable lamp lights as a project.
Little Free Tree House Library
4505 39th Place
Borrow a book...put in a book to share with the neighborhood.
This Free Library program is a great way to recycle books, share good-reads with others and build a literacy-friendly neighborhood. Share: the more books, the better (but nothing inappropriate). There are books for all ages.
Return the book when you’ve finished reading it or give it to a friend. Our goal is to keep the library stocked with old, new and classic books.
