HBW Construction partnered up with Nourish Now and Council Member Andrew Friedson to volunteer at their annual Thanksgiving Dinner! It was our fourth year helping host a dinner for those in need, and what better feeling knowing families were able to enjoy a nice Thanksgiving meal without stress. Whether it was in the kitchen preparing the dinner spread or filling bags with food items for the families to pick up, we all had a terrific time helping those less fortunate.
About Nourish Now
Nourish Now brings food security to families, children, and seniors in need in Montgomery County, Maryland. Through food recovery, we work to solve two major social issues: hunger and food waste.
Nourish Now strives to meet this goal by collecting donations of surplus fresh food from our dedicated Food Donor Partners throughout the Washington D.C. Metro region. Food is then redistributed directly to over 600 families in need each month and to over 90 local nonprofit organizations that offer food assistance. By providing donations to other charities, our reach and impact expands as Montgomery County’s food assistance sector is strengthened. These organizations can then repurpose funding that would otherwise be used to purchase food for their clients. Nourish Now’s programs are designed to alleviate food insecurity, and ultimately, the additional symptoms of poverty.
Nourish Now is a 501(c)3 non-profit based in Rockville, Maryland that collects food donations from restaurants, caterers, bakeries, grocery stores and other providers. Food donations are distributed directly to those in need, housing and social service agencies, religious institutions and other organizations that assist in feeding the hungry.
