Harvest for the Hungry (HFTH) is a year-round volunteer effort by various corporations and organizations to raise food, funds and awareness for the Maryland Food Bank and its counterparts throughout Maryland. Initially, this effort began in 1986 as a holiday food drive. It was extended because Larry V. Adam, Jr., the founder, believed that “hunger takes no holiday.” In its distinguished 20+ year history, Harvest for the Hungry campaigns have collected more than 28 million pounds of food.
Thanks for your help!
