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

    Still a couple of people on the waiting list, so don't forget to update your RSVP if you can't make it on Saturday.

    Also, we usually go to lunch afterwards (around noon) if anyone's interested.

    Thanks again to everyone who's signed up for this event!

    Yesterday I let everyone in from the waiting list, but it's no longer empty.

    So please remember to update your RSVPs by Thursday (if not sooner) if you can't make it on Saturday.
