Important Announcements

A special note from Deborah Flateman, the President & CEO of the Maryland Food Bank:

Hello Partners,

Once again I am reaching out to engage your help with signing on to Feeding America’s letter to Congress that requests preservation of SNAP and TEFAP funding in the Farm Bill. All of our voices together make a tremendous impact. As a member of the Maryland Food Bank Network, I respectfully request that you sign onto the letter along with the food bank. It’s easy!

Here is the link: Sign our Network Letter on the Farm Bill! Click here for more information and the link for the letter.

Thank you for all of your hard work. These are tough times and we all must join together to get our message heard!!

My best to you,
Deborah

General Announcements

The Face of Hunger
For those of you who attended our 2012 Be A Voice: Hunger Action Symposium, you heard Matt Knott of Feeding America read a touching account of a hungry person's plight. Here it is.


Account Payments
Please be sure to note your Agency and Program number, as well as, the invoice you are paying when you send payments for your account. You should also include the payment stub attached to the invoice you are paying. Doing these things will ensure that your payment will be applied to the correct invoice, and that it is not mistaken for a donation to the Food Bank.
