Hunger Doesn't Take a Holiday
Elect to End Hunger was developed in partnership with local elected officials’ spouses four years ago and is held in October, just before Election Day every year. At the first Elect to End Hunger, volunteers packed 4,800 holiday meal boxes. This year, 12,800 boxes will be packed at the Maryland Food Bank’s Baltimore County facility, with an additional 3,000 packed at branches in Wicomico County and Washington County.
