In its first 15 months, the United Way of Central Maryland's Access to Healthy Food Initiative distributed more than 3.4 million pounds of groceries to low-income individuals and families, the organization said.
But because spring and summer are slow times for food donations, the UWCM is holding its first Families Living United Healthy Food Week campaign, which continues through Saturday.
Businesses, schools and organizations are being encouraged to conduct their own drives. Others can drop off healthy donations at partners' sites, including Coldwell Banker offices, Baltimore County Public Libraries and The Mall in Columbia. You can also go into Santoni's Super Market or Eddie's of Roland Park and purchase a $10 voucher toward a healthy food package that the markets will assemble and donate.
A complete list of sites is here.
