Feed Howard County launches ‘Feeding the 5,000’ campaign

Feed Howard County and The Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation launched the Feed the 5,000 campaign Wednesday with the goal of providing at least 5,000 meals to families in need in Howard County by July 4.

Feed Howard County is a program designed to work with local restaurants to provide healthy meals to those in need and is an initiative in cooperation with the Howard County COAD, county and state officials and other regional nonprofits.

The Feed Howard County program raises money to buy nutritious meals from local restaurants who are struggling to stay open during these challenging times. Donations serve a threefold purpose; helping families in need, helping local restaurants to stay open and helping their employees.

The Howard County COAD was formed to improve the awareness of the needs of the community and connect those needs with organizations that can provide support. The goal of the organization is to organize and deploy community resources in an efficient and timely manner during each phase of a disaster.

The Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation will act as the fiscal sponsor of the program and will manage all incoming donations. Those who would like to support the “Feeding the 5,000” initiative can visit and select “Feed Howard County” under the first drop down bar.
