— On Tuesday, February 6, 2018, the Maryland Food Bank (MFB) welcomed associates from ShopRite and Price Rite Marketplace stores who made a special check presentation at a volunteer night in the food bank’s warehouse.

The generous donation of $117,500 represents the annual ShopRite Partners In Caring contribution from 11 ShopRite and three Price Rite Marketplace stores located in the Maryland Food Bank service area. The funds will support the work of 30 community agencies that help feed the hungry throughout Maryland.

“Without our distribution partners, the Maryland Food Bank would be unable to distribute the millions of pounds of food we provide annually to our food-insecure neighbors. Our partners are the backbone of our food assistance network,” said MFB CEO & President Carmen Del Guercio. “We are very grateful to partners like ShopRite and Price Rite Marketplace for recognizing the impact they have on our ability to feed hundreds of thousands of hungry Marylanders.”

Following the check presentation, the ShopRite and Price Rite team members helped sort and pack food on the food bank’s conveyor belt for distribution to hungry families across the state.
