Extra funds from Baltimore County have helped the Maryland Food Bank deliver 126,000 pounds of food to needy residents, county officials said Friday.
The county had allocated a supplemental $75,000 for the Pantry on the Go program, which supports temporary food distribution sites. That was in addition to $325,000 the county has budgeted this year to help the food bank.
The mobile program "quickly and cost-effectively delivers food to community-based host sites to provide immediate relief to struggling families, seniors and also former steelworkers in Dundalk," County Executive Kevin Kamenetz said in a statement.
Residents who need help can contact the food bank at 410-737-8282 to find a food pantry in their area.
