Anglers in White Marlin Open donate fish to Maryland Food Bank
OCEAN CITY, Md. – The Maryland Food Bank has been in Ocean City all week for the white Marlin Open and no they weren’t there to fish. For the past 10 years they’ve been collecting fish that other anglers catch during the tournament to donate to local food pantries. Food Bank officials tell 47 ABC they’ve got donations like mahi and tuna. And for the past week they’ve received a total of 1,300 pounds of fish to give out to local families in need.
“This fish is not being thrown away and it’s going right back into the community and I think that’s a big thing and it’s very rewarding for me because I love my job but it’s really working in helping,” said Food Source Manager Butch Lagenfelder.
And of course the Maryland Food Bank is always looking for donations so if you would like to donate to the organization you can do so here.
