Business Leaders Fighting Hunger

There are more than 60,000 residents in Montgomery County who don’t know if they’ll have three meals today or tomorrow and not enough government funding to feed them all. In just three months since its launch, @BusinessLeadersFightingHunger has raised over $400,000 and awarded its first $75,000 grant. With this grant, we’ll be able to serve an additional 800 residents through Food is Medicine. We’re proud to be partners and encourage others to get involved! Find out more here.
