The Stephen and Renee Bisciotti Foundation has donated $1 million to the Maryland Food Bank to help with coronavirus relief efforts, the nonprofit organization announced Friday.
It’s the second signification public donation from Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti, whose foundation, along with the Ravens, donated a combined $1 million in March to support four local nonprofits during the pandemic.
Maryland Food Bank president and CEO Carmen Del Guercio said in a statement to the Ravens that Bisciotti’s donation is the largest private gift the organization has received in support of its COVID-19 relief efforts.
“The entire team at the Maryland Food Bank is both grateful and inspired by the generosity of Steve and Renee Bisciotti. This transformational gift will strengthen our ability to source and deliver good, quality food for families in need across Maryland,” Del Guercio said. “The impact of this pandemic will be felt here in Maryland for many months to come."
The MFB works with staff, volunteer and its network of community partners to help feed hungry Marylanders and build long-term paths to self-sufficiency.
“The Maryland Food Bank is doing great work in the Baltimore area during this crisis,” Steve Bisciotti said in a statement. “We are confident the food bank will continue to make a difference for those most in need.”
