Our goal is simple – support local restaurants and provide meals for community members in need during the COVID 19 crisis.
The current situation is unprecedented and is having a devastating effect on local businesses, especially restaurants. Many have had to lay off employees or shut down completely. In parallel, many families are struggling to make ends meet and providing delicious, healthy meals is becoming increasingly difficult as grocery stores are running out of everything.
We are raising money today so that we can pay local restaurants to make food for those in need. This will allow restaurants to pay their employees and keep their lights on. We are working with restaurants throughout the county to ensure the greatest coverage.
Anne Arundel Connecting Together (ACT) has connected with AA County Partnership for Children, Youth, and Families. Together with 30+ local restaurants, we are working with them to supplement mobile food pantries across the county to provide healthy & delicious restaurant quality meals.
Please consider donating to our fund. Every penny counts. Your donation will support so many people – from cooks and servers to farmers and, of course, local families in need – the ripple effect will be felt across our community.
We are now working with the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation who will manage & distribute funds raised to ensure accurate management and reporting.
