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.

      The bakery or g&h or somewhere else?

      Bakery is the fastest place that I can think of.

    The waiting list sure grew quickly in the past couple of days. We currently have 13 people on the waiting list, for an event with only 12 volunteers!

    Please remember to update your RSVP (even if you're on the waiting list) no later than Thurs, June 12 if you can't make it to this event. We don't want to be short of volunteers when there are this many people on the waiting list!

    Something's come up and I can no longer make it. Hopefully that just made someone on the waiting list very happy. :) I already know I won't be there in July either, so hopefully I will see you all in August.

    Don't forget to update your RSVPs by this Thurs if you can't make it, in order to give advance notice to anyone being moved up from the waiting list.

    Thanks to everyone who has already updated their RSVPs.

    Reminder: Please remember to update your RSVPs as soon as possible if you can't make it to this event, as a courtesy to those on the waiting list.

      ... and don't forget to update your RSVP if you're on the waiting list as well, as a courtesy to everyone else on the waiting list.
