MARYLAND FOOD BANK
Regency Furniture, donated a truckload of food on Tuesday, April 28th to the Maryland Food Bank to support the non-profit’s food relief efforts during the COVID-19 crisis.
A Regency Furniture Showroom truck is geared up to deliver the perfect accent piece for the Maryland Food Bank – hundreds of giant boxes filled with thousands of pounds of non-perishable food.
Despite being one of the wealthiest states in the nation, Maryland’s communities are deeply impacted by food insecurity. The donation fed thousands of families who already depend on the charity for food as well as those who have been impacted by the Corona Virus.
In the age of COVID-19, the company took extra precautions to ensure that all materials, boxes and food are handled with gloves and face masks to minimize the risk of contamination.
Touted as the hub of Maryland’s food assistance safety net, Maryland Food Bank distributes over 40 million meals annually. It is the only non-profit with the capacity to address food insecurity in times of emergencies. But since late March, the order volume has doubled, while donated food available to the network has dropped by 90 percent. Regency Furniture is responding to the non-profits appeal for food donations.
For more than two decades Regency Furniture Showrooms has been serving the Washington Metropolitan area with the latest styles and trend of furniture. Over the years the company has deepened its commitment to giving back to the community by spearheading several charity fundraisings events. This food donation to Maryland Food Bank is their latest initiative to help the community.
