The Maryland Food Bank, an affiliate of America's Second Harvest and the only food bank serving the entire state, was founded in 1979 to coordinate the procurement and distribution of food donations from manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers and government agencies to organizations providing free food to the state's hungry.
The collection was donated to the University of Baltimore by Bill Ewing in 2003 as part of a course in Community Studies and Civic Engagement taught by Jessica Elfenbein.
