Statistics from the Maryland Food Bank show:

· Marylanders miss 134 million meals every year.

· 1 in 8 Marylanders are food insecure

· Over 760,000 people in Maryland do not have enough to eat

In Baltimore City specifically, the Center for a Livable Future noted:

· 1 in 4 residents live in a food desert, meaning that they do not have reliable access to fresh, healthy food.

The private sector can play a huge role in helping to solve these issues by giving back to the community and supporting the nonprofit organizations that are working on the ground to create a healthier, more equitable food system.
