Fighting food insecurity in Maryland amid the COVID-19 pandemic
The COVID-19 pandemic has left food banks under tremendous pressure to meet the skyrocketing demand of hungry families and individuals. To assist in efforts to feed hungry Marylanders, Maryland Farm Bureau and the Maryland Food Bank have partnered to launch the #HungerHeroes campaign.
Maryland Farm Bureau has set a goal to raise $10,000 and collect 10,000 pounds of food donations for MFB through the campaign. A “Hunger Hero” digital badge will be awarded to individuals, organizations, and businesses who have made a donation of at least $1,000.
