Though you might not know it, Maryland is the wealthiest state in the country. And yet, hundreds of thousands of Marylanders don’t know where their next meal is coming from. That’s more than ever before, and includes over a quarter of a million children. During the holidays, the need is especially great. Demand for food surges as the weather gets colder. And while many of us are able to put food on the holiday table without giving much thought to the cost of a few extra trimmings, the cost of feeding a whole family on a regular basis can be prohibitive for so many of our fellow Baltimoreans. So while you shop this year, we’d like to encourage you to also consider donating to an organization that will absolutely put your money to good use– The Maryland Food Bank.
The Maryland Food Bank, along with its partners, distribute more than 100,000 meals a day throughout the year. And during the holidays they make a special effort to provide families with a meal to gather around. We all know that the holidays can be as difficult as they can be bright, depending greatly on our circumstances. Even a small donation can go a long way when you know it’s going to put food on a family’s table. And now is the ideal time to donate, and to truly embody the holiday spirit.
The Maryland Food Bank accepts donations in the form of funds, food, or volunteer time. For more information on how to give, visit mdfoodbank.org.
