Give to the Max Supports Produce

By Lynn Brantley October 26, 2011

Give to the Max Day is almost upon us. As you consider participating on November 9, know that your donation supports the Capital Area Food Bank’s Fresh Produce Campaign. Your contribution will enable us to continue distributing 15 million pounds of nutritious fruits and vegetables at no cost to our more than 700 partner agencies in the Washington metro area.

We also provide fresh produce to our direct service programs, such as Mobile Pantry, Kids Cafe® and Senior Brown Bag. Your support will help us continue to help feed 480,000 people annually.

Here are just a few testimonials from some of our partner agencies:

“The residents were very pleased with the quality of the produce and the items received. Keep up the good work.” –Green Ridge House, Greenbelt, MD

“Food arrived on time and was in good condition. We had one item that was not identifiable. So we just went to internet and looked it up. We gave clients recipes and tips on how to prepare some of the vegetables that they were not familiar with. They decided to take home some to try on a few rejected it. However, everything we had was distributed. So we are now ready to receive more!! The clients appreciate it and was very grateful. Thank you very much.” –The True Vine Center

“We keep growing. It’s a case of our rejoicing that we are expanding service or crying because the need is so great.” –Marvin Memorial United Methodist Church, Silver Spring, MD

Please make your donations on-line in support of the Capital Area Food Bank’s Fresh Produce Campaign. I thank you profoundly in advance of your Give to the Max Day participation.
