“We are extremely excited to be partnering with Dunkin’ Donuts on this initiative,” comments Maryland Food Bank CEO, Deborah Flateman. “This is a fun and easy way for people to donate to the food bank. If you donate just $1 for your breakfast sandwich you are enabling the food bank to process 3 pounds of food for its network of soup kitchens, food pantries and emergency shelters.”

The Maryland Food Bank aims to serve the 370,000 Marylanders living at or below the poverty level in their service area (not including Prince George’s and Montgomery Counties). Founded in 1979, the Maryland Food Bank was the first food bank on the East Coast and the third food bank in the country. In 2004, the Maryland Food Bank accepted responsibility for several essential feeding and nutrition programs that had been conducted by the Center for Poverty Solutions (formerly the Maryland Food Committee) before it closed. Today, the Maryland Food Bank distributes millions of pounds of food to more than 1,000 food providers across Maryland (excluding Prince George’s and Montgomery Counties, served by the Capital Area Food Bank).
