We can turn $1 into 5 nutritious meals.in 2019-2020, we distributed approximately 7m nutritious meals.we bring an abundance of fruits and vegetables to the tables of the Food insecure through our produce rescue center which now accounts for over 50% of our total distribution and has kept 8.5m pounds (190 semi-trucks) of product out of the landfill since its inception.in fiscal year 2019-2020, mcfb delivered 222,000 meals via our school programs throughout Montgomery County, serving all 6 area school districts.over 5,000 people donated their time at the Food Bank last year in a new volunteer experience that emphasizes community and team building, an understanding of the impact they're having, and fun.
