Sandy Spring Bank Donates 25,000 Meals to Capital Area Food Bank
As the largest, locally headquartered community bank in the Greater Washington region, Sandy Spring Bank works closely with Capital Area Food Bank, the region’s largest food bank, to help fight hunger. That’s why over the past six years we have donated over 120,000 meals and worked with the food bank to help improve access to nutritious food for all of our neighbors.
As part of our #SSB150 Season of Sharing, a group of our employees recently presented a $10,000 check to Capital Area Food Bank and volunteered in the warehouse, packing and sorting food. Throughout the year you can also find our employees volunteering at Joyful Food Markets, which are pop-up farmers markets held in elementary schools in Wards 7 and 8 in Washington, D.C. Together we hope to build stronger communities by donating our time and resources to partners like Capital Area Food Bank.
Capital Area Food Bank provides food sourcing, distribution and nutrition education to children, seniors and families in the Washington area. The food bank works with over 400 partners to get food from the warehouse to neighbors in need. Annually, nearly 640,000 individuals benefit from these services and learn how to grow, cook and budget for healthier meals.
We are grateful for the important role that the Capital Area Food Bank plays in our community, and we are pleased to partner together to make an impact during our #SSB150 Season of Sharing!
