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.

    Reminder: If you're on either the volunteer list or the waiting list, don't forget to update your RSVP by Thurs, Feb 6 if you can't make it on Saturday.

    The MD Food Bank needs everyone who's on the volunteer list to be there on Saturday! (Fortunately, we've had very few no-shows to this event in the past few months.)

    Thanks to everyone who has already updated their RSVPs!

    Waiting list is still very long (18 currently), so PLEASE remember to update your RSVP if you can't make it on Feb 8, even if you're on the waiting list.

    Mitch, I changed my RSVP to no so someone else can go. See you at BIG.

    Waiting list is up to 22 people, so I'm closing out the RSVPs. Please remember to update your RSVP if you can't make it on Feb 8.

    Seems like I just announced this event, and suddenly we have 17 people currently on the waiting list. (Good thing this is an online sign-up, or I'd be worried about getting trampled...!)

    PLEASE remember to update your RSVP as soon as possible if you can't make it. Even if you're on the waiting list.
