Maryland Food Bank

The Maryland Food Bank needs an accurate estimate of how many people will be volunteering for this event, so please update your RSVP as soon as possible if you aren't able to make it to this event.

 

The Maryland Food Bank was founded in 1979 to coordinate the procurement and distribution of food donations from manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers and government agencies to organizations providing free food to the state's hungry.

 

Volunteers usually work on a high-tech conveyor belt in the warehouse, pulling specific types of food from the belt as they pass, and packing the sorted food into 25 - 50-pound boxes. Full boxes are then placed on the Maryland Food Bank's daily menu, available for more than 600 soup kitchens, pantries and shelters across the state to order.

Additional volunteer info can be found at the MD Food Bank's website, at www.mdfoodbank.org.

    I have to stop fooling myself. After work in the morning, I probably won't make it. Esp. not on time. I've been trying to volunteer at the food bank for at least 2 years now and I thought this was perfect but, it's not. Sorry its kinda last minute :(

    A couple of people have just joined the waiting list. If you aren't able to make it, please update your RSVP as soon as possible, so we can add people from the waiting list.

    I was going to join the waitlist but I don't have the access to the internet I would need to see if I were added on... May I call tomorrow evening or Sat morning to see if there are any last minute cancellations?

      TJ: Because I'm a generous soul (and mostly because the waiting list is currently empty), I've manually added you to the volunteer list. See you Saturday morning!

    Thanks Mitch!! I tried to get in in January, but it was already filled. Sorry I had to cancel B-Reads, had to go into the office Sat to work overtime. See you Sat.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
