A Food Network truck and Chris Ford, executive pastry chef at Wit & Wisdom in the new Four Seasons, will be at the Whole Foods Market in Harbor East from 4-8 p.m. today, collecting customer donations to benefit the Maryland Food Bank.
The chef, pictured, will also be shopping for nutritious pantry items and fresh foods during the event. These products are needed to help fill a shortage among Food Bank donations.
The initiative is part of a joint project involving the Food Network, Share Our Strength, and Whole Foods for a food drive in Baltimore to help alleviate childhood hunger. Food Network and Whole Foods are partners in Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign.
The Food Network is also donating thousands of items to the Maryland Food Bank, including cans of vegetables, tuna, and soup. But there’s always a need for more.
