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 MD Food Bank gave us the OK to add a couple more volunteers this month. However, we still have a few more people on the waiting list, so PLEASE REMEMBER to update your RSVPs if you can't make it to this event on July 12.
