Miltec UV inside sales representative Nancy Kunkel and her husband Dan, often spend their evenings out in the bountiful fields and orchards on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, working with the Maryland Food Bank to harvest fresh produce for those in need.
The Maryland Food Bank works with a network of farmers on the Eastern Shore and throughout Maryland, who generously donate portions of their crops to provide hungry Marylanders with fresh, nutritious, local produce. When the crops are ready, volunteers head out to the fields to pick corn, potatoes, apples, pears, cucumbers, watermelons and even pumpkins. The gathered food is then delivered to the nearly 1,250 distribution partners, including soup kitchens, pantries, and shelters in Maryland.
Nancy also volunteers with our local Food Pantry, sponsored through Haven Ministries, helping distribute the gathered and donated food, clothing, and household products to more than 100 families each month.
