SHORE UP! Lends A Helping Hand

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - Over the holidays we hear a lot about the need for food, but it's important to acknowledge the non-profits and where all that food comes from.  Through the Emergency Food Assistance Program, SHORE UP! has distributed more than 300,000 pounds of food to pantries throughout the area in the last two months alone.

During a time when many are focusing on giving toys to needy children for the holidays, SHORE UP!  says their focus is on something more simple.  "Those basic needs for survival, that's our main concern during the holiday season, says Kristi Brown of SHORE UP!, "through our program, we get food from the government which provides supplemental food to those food providers and of course we cannot keep them filled with what they have now."

Representatives from SHORE UP! say the federal government helps local food banks stock their shelves, but they're still in need.  So, be sure to contact you're local food pantries to find out how you can help them out.
