PIKESVILLE, Md. — The Jewish Volunteer Connection decided to help after recognizing the many people who are worried about food during the current coronavirus pandemic.

They delivered more than 1,000 meals to be passed out to those in need.

The lunches will be distributed to local nonprofits, including Manna House, Basilica Place and Baltimore Rescue Mission.

"I think being able to volunteer helps people feel like they have more control and they're able to help in a time where people can feel very helpless."

The Jewish Volunteer Connection is part of the Associated Jewish Federation of Baltimore and they welcome anyone who wants to help.
