CAPITAL MEATS PROVIDES MARYLAND FOOD BANK WITH $6,350 WORTH OF MEAT

 

 

  Capital Meats Partners Maryland Food Bank
 
   

In 2010, Capital Meats has provided the Maryland Food Bank (a member of Feeding America Organization)with over $6,000 worth of steak, chicken, and pok to help stamp out hunger in Maryland.

 

To end hunger in Maryland, the Maryland Food Bank website says that they would have to distribute over 84.4 million pounds of food annually to their service areas. Food pantries, soup kitchens, and emergency shelters partner with the food bank along with 400 other network partners. The MD Food Bank sited that they provided 18.6 million pounds of food in 2009. So far this year, Capital Meats has provided approximately 13,500 pounds of food, and plan to do so again in the near future.

 

Studies show that there are more than 261,000 people that use the Maryland Food Bank’s services along with emergency food sources each year. Of those numbers, 71,514 are under the age of 18. This has become a vital problem in Maryland along with other states in which we service as well. It is important to CMI to be able to lend a hand to those who are in need in any way that we are able to do so.

Capital Meats has 11 office locations located in 4 different states along the East Coast that include Maryland, Virginia, Tennessee and North Carolina. Giving back is important to Capital Meats because we live and work in these same communities and we are invested in making sure they continue to thrive.
