Maryland Food Bank looking for more volunteers

The Maryland Food Bank has issued “an urgent call for help” for more volunteers to sort and pack for distribution more than 250,000 pounds of food stored at its warehouse at 2200 Halethorpe Farms Road in Halethorpe, Baltimore County.

The nonprofit organization, which distributes food to the needy through a network of 600 soup kitchens, pantries and shelters across Maryland, said due to increased donations from Wegmans supermarkets and other local donors, its current volunteers “simply cannot keep up.”

For information, go to the food bank’s website,; to sign up, contact Jill Kusner, volunteer coordinator, at 410-737-8282 ext. 232 or [email protected].
