United Way of Central Maryland working to meet the healthy food needs in Howard County


    This past weekend I had an opportunity to assist other volunteers at the community garden that grows produce to be distributed at the Howard County Food Bank.   Anyone who has ever raised a garden knows the challenge of weeding and watering to maintain a healthy garden.


      With the help of a number of volunteers a substantial amount of vegetables were harvested and weeds were removed.


       The United Way of Central Maryland has been an active funder of the efforts of Community Action to provide for the food and nutrition needs of Howard County citizens through the funding of the purchase of a large commercial refrigerator to store the vegetables before distribution.



    The United Way has also provided some of the funding necessary to develop and operate the Roving Radish which provides healthful low cost food for a number of low income families in Howard County.  If you would like to make a donation to assist the United Way provide for the food needs of families in Howard County you can make a donation here.
