The Anne Arundel Food & Resources Bank will officially join the Maryland Food Bank's network on Tuesday.
The organizations will join forces to distribute bulk quantities of food to local agencies. This partnership allows access to more food including fresh produce.
The partnership is expected to greatly increase the amount of healthy, nutritious food reaching Anne Arundel County families in need. Currently 43,730 county residents are uncertain where their next meal is coming from. Of that number, nearly half are children.
