A Regency Furniture Showroom truck delivered the perfect accent piece for the Maryland Food Bank – hundreds of giant boxes filled with thousands of pounds of non-perishable food to help support the non-profit’s food relief efforts during the COVID-19 crisis.

1 in 4 Marylanders are facing hunger or food insecurity. This donation is expected to feed thousands of families who already depend on the charity for food as well as those who have been impacted by the coronavirus. During donation, Regency Furniture took extra precautions to ensure that all materials, boxes and food were handled with gloves and face masks to minimize the risk of contamination.

The Maryland Food Bank distributes over 40 million meals annually. It is the only non-profit with the capacity to address food insecurity in times of emergencies. But since late March, the order volume has doubled, while donated food available to the network has dropped by 90 percent. Regency Furniture is responding to the non-profits appeal for food donations.
