The Millington-Crumpton Food Pantry, housed at Asbury UMC in Millington, will continue to open every Monday during the pandemic. However, there will be some modifications. No one will be allowed to enter the building and must remain in their cars. All food will be bagged and then wheeled to your car to place in the trunk. Staff will do all the signing in and signing out as we will become your proxy for the time being. The food pantry is a USDA food pantry so you must meet eligibility requirements-have a SNAP card, receive fuel assistance, or be on medical assistance or Medicaid. If you are coming for the first time, you must bring that proof and a photo ID. If you are unemployed because of the pandemic, you can apply for SNAP benefits by calling 1-888-808-7327 or go online to //This email address is being protected from spambots.

            We are also preparing emergency food boxes for those who do not qualify for the food pantry but are in need of food. You can call Faye Everett at 443-480-0053 to arrange for this. You will pick up at the church but remain in your car. Right now the pick up day for these will be Mondays from 1-3. But you MUST call in advance.

            Because we cannot accept donations of food at this time, we are asking that if you are able, we can accept financial donations because we are purchasing the emergency food. Even at a highly reduced cost, it does mount up. We can save 50% or more by purchasing from the MD Food Bank. Monetary donations can be sent to the following address:

Millington-Crumpton Food Pantry

PO Box 187

Millington, MD 21651

            Thank you to everyone in the community who has supported us over the years, whether with time, donations of food, or monetary donations. You have no idea of the impact you have on our community and surrounding communities. Together, we will get through this pandemic.

                                                                                    Sincerely,

                                                                                    Faye Everett

Residents

The residents of the Town of Millington envision making our town a desirable place to live, work, and play. Millington is a place of beauty, diversity and pleasant memories. A self-sufficient, caring small town with a tradition of rural living and slow, controlled, growth; Millington is a community of opportunity for its many locally-owned small businesses.

History of the Town of Millington

The Town of Millington, a municipal corporation under Maryland law, was originally chartered as a town by the Maryland General Assembly in 1798. The town was incorporated in 1890. Millington grew up as a small village located on the Chester River, sharing shores with both Kent and Queen Anne's County. The land on which it is located was settled in the late 17th century. Over the years, the name of the town has changed - originating as Head of Chester, to Bridgetown around 1724, and finally in 1818 to become known as the Town of Millington.

Prior to the Civil War

The Town of Millington was a busy seat of commerce and agriculture. Millington was located in the center of a large corn, wheat, and fruit growing area. Downtown commerce included a hardware store, clothing and supply shops, a bank, hotels, and mills. In the late 1860s, the railroad was constructed connecting Wilmington and Philadelphia to Millington and points further south. The Kent and Queen Anne's Railroad enabled Millington to become one of the largest peach shippers in the county for many years.

Millington Today

Today, Millington is still a small town with strong echoes from the past. Millington is a walkable, self-contained town with a clear rural character and atmosphere. The town has two public parks and a skateboard park within the town limits. The Millington Ballfield Association, in conjunction with the Millington Lions Club, has a facility on the Kent County Board of Education property close to the town limits. The Millington Swim Club facility, with a swimming pool and tennis court, is located partially in the Town limits and is owned and operated by the Kent County Parks and Recreation for public use. Also, the head of the Chester River runs through the Town of Millington, offering lovely public fishing areas with perch spawning in the spring, and catfish, spot, sunfish, yellow perch and the occasional striped bass throughout the remainder of the season.
