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 return to the Baltimore warehouse of the Maryland Food Bank.
From the Food Bank: “Legato, thank you for donating your time and energy to fighting hunger in Maryland! Your support makes it possible for us to distribute more than 37 million meals annually through our network of 1,250 distribution partners across the state.
After all of your hard work, you may be curious about just how much food your efforts contributed to Marylanders in need. You helped pack over 10,244 pounds of food, which equates to 8,534 meals! To learn more about the impact your work has on our hungry neighbors, listen to their stories. Thanks to volunteers like you, we are one step closer to achieving our goal of ending hunger throughout Maryland.”
