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 am really excited about this great opportunity to give back to the community. I volunteered back in high school for community service hours and earned way beyond my required number of hours. I look forward to seeing you guys bright eyed and bushy tailed Saturday morning.

    Boy this filled up fast!

    I think I can get more volunteer slots, but I'll need to confirm with the MD Food Bank, as soon as they return from the Holidays next week.

      Hi Mitch, my son is 12 yrs old and he would like to come with me to help out on Saturday. Is it okay if he comes along?
