Statewide Food Drive Begins

BALTIMORE (AP) — A statewide food drive is getting underway in Maryland.

Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown will join Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake on Friday in Baltimore to launch the 26th Annual Harvest for the Hungry.

Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz and Howard County Executive Ken Ulman also will attend.

The food drive encourages Marylanders to donate healthy food for a week beginning March 3.

Maryland residents can leave donated food by their mailboxes for letter carriers to collect. They can also drop off food donations at one of 20 local Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage offices.

They can also buy $10 bags of food at any Safeway store and leave it in a donation box at the store.
