Food pantry on the go


Jose Idrovo, from left, Gabriel Encino, Javol Pesantez and Steven Chaco, all of whom work near M&T Bank Stadium, collect boxes of fresh produce and groceries at a Pantry on the Go event organized by the Maryland Food Bank in partnershi­p with Carefirst, Zeta Sigma and the Baltimore Ravens. About 40 volunteers from these organizati­ons were on hand to help load approximat­ely 12,000 pounds of food, boxed for distributi­on, into vehicles for neighbors in need. A recent report by the Maryland Food Bank found that the number of Marylander­s in need of food assistance through their network rose by 30% between March and May of this year.
