Sandy Food Resource Day

Posted: Updated:

Crisfield, Md - The Maryland Hunger Solutions teamed up with the Maryland Food Bank to give aid to the residents of Crisfield who are still struggling after super storm Sandy.

Many organizations; including the AARP, DHR, Maryland Hunger Solutions and Maryland Food Bank teamed up at the Disaster Recovery Center and helped residents out with food. While here, people affected by the super storm were also able to apply for D-SNAP (Disaster Supplemental Nutrition Assistance), which is a 30 day food benefit for eligible storm victims who are not already receiving SNAP/FSP/Food Stamp Benefits.

"Today we have partnered with residents here in the community as well as Maryland Food Bank and the Maryland Food Bank has donated food for 300 families so in addition to supporting the efforts here with DHR and FEMA that is going on for disaster recovery, we are also distributing food for those who have been affected by the storm." says Senior Manager of Maryland Hunger Solutions Brooke McCauley.

With many volunteers and supporters, the residents who needed aid were able to receive an index card which they would hand over to the Maryland Hunger Solutions and receive fresh produce, chicken and other sorts of food.

"It [Super storm Sandy] did damage, my electric went out, didn't have no heat, food went bad and being here, it's a very big help. I wouldn't have too much food for dinner so that helped the whole night. I'm very grateful, that's all I can say" says resident Willie Ames.
