HBW Construction partnered up with Nourish Now to volunteer at their Thanksgiving Dinner and Meal Service Delivery on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. A group of employees was in the kitchen preparing the dinner spread, while another group was packing up food items for families to pick up for their Thanksgiving dinner at home. It was such a humbling experience and we all had a great time serving others in need!
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.
