BALTIMORE — Hundreds of meals are being distributed throughout the state daily through this state of emergency due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Greenmount Recreation Center in Baltimore is just one of the sites the city is operating.

On Tuesday, Governor Larry Hogan and Mayor Jack Young visited the distribution center.

They also discussed the current economic fallout.

"When the crisis is over people are going to have a lot of catching up to do. It’s just something we're all going to have to figure out how we're going to help people climb out of that because there's the health need and the economic need and they're both going to be overwhelming," said Gov. Hogan.

"I’m calling on the federal government particularly our president to put forward a stimulus package for the citizens so we can get the support that we need," said Mayor Jack Young.

Residents can pick up free meals for students and seniors at more than 50 sites across Baltimore.
