Helping Hurricane Sandy Victims

State Funding Helps Provide More than 70,000 Pounds of Food to Marylanders Impacted by Sandy


Hurricane Sandy has left its devastating mark on areas in Maryland, and the Maryland Food Bank is reaching out to help.

With a $2 million grant funded by Governor Martin O’Malley and approved by the Maryland legislature, the Maryland
Food Bank distributed 36,000 pounds of food to Crisfield and other Somerset County areas last week.

Today, the Maryland Food Bank is partnering with the Garrett County Community Action Center to distribute 34,000
pounds of food to those in Western Maryland who were also negatively affected by the storm.

Distribution takes place today at three locations. If there is remaining food from today’s distribution, it will be available
in the coming days. Individuals in need of assistance can contact Adina Bride at the Garrett County Community
Action Committee, 301-334-9341.
