Hunger is a very real issue that real people deal with every day. Despite being one of the wealthiest states in the nation, Marylanders from all walks of life find themselves in need of food assistance from time to time, for a variety of reasons.

Transcription: My name is Tracey Coleman. My husband was a third-generation steel worker. They closed down The Point and we had to find a way to feed our family. We do have a disabled daughter. She’s autistic and it limited the time that I could spend working. The Maryland Food Bank and its donors have changed my life. I know that without Maryland Food Bank I would have had to make some very tough choices. When you are support the Maryland Food Bank you’re supporting families who just need a hand.
