The Maryland Food Bank has been working hard to provide food assistance since COVID-19 first emerged last spring.

They have been facing major problems – food donations are down, food prices are up and supply chain problems are everywhere. Since the pandemic began in March, they have spent 400 percent more than in 2019. And, sadly, it looks like next year the need will be equally as daunting.

The food bank expects to be doubling its efforts in 2021.

There are lots of creative ways to donate to the Maryland Food Bank, including monthly donor plans, IRA distributions, and setting up your own virtual food drive. For more information, visit
