Legato Day of Service – Maryland Food Bank

Every year, the Legato Day of Service serves as an opportunity to step away from our day jobs and to give that time to a worthy cause or organization. This year, we chose to work at the Baltimore warehouse of the Maryland Food Bank.

From The Maryland Food Bank:

“The Maryland Food Bank is a nonprofit hunger-relief organization, leading the movement to end hunger throughout Maryland. For more than 35 years, the Maryland Food Bank has partnered with communities across the state to distribute food to individuals and families in need. Through carefully crafted programs, the food bank aims to meet the immediate needs of Marylanders while simultaneously working to find long-term ways to reduce hunger statewide. Currently distributing more than 100,000 meals per day—nearly 37 million meals annually—the Maryland Food Bank will continue to expand its efforts until hunger ends.”

We spent the day repacking donated food on the Food Bank’s conveyor system, packing food that was distributed to pantries, and shelters throughout the state.
