Food for a Cause – Annual Holiday Food Drive
Posted on November 22, 2016

‘Tis the season of giving! Charm City Concierge is excited to have worked with three organizations regionally to collect canned goods for local food drives and we couldn’t have done it without the generous donations from our clients. Some of you even got creative – turning your donations into works of art or friendly competitions between tenants.

moveable-feastEach year in Maryland, we partner with BOMA Baltimore for our annual holiday food drive to collect donations for Moveable Feast. Moveable Feast, located in Baltimore, is a fantastic charitable organization that prepares and delivers meals and groceries to families that are in need and living with HIV/AIDS and other life-challenging conditions. What originally started as an initiative to help Baltimore City based residents, has now elevated to serving 14 of the 24 counties in Maryland.

Our partnership with Moveable Feast is not limited to the food drive. Over the past few years, our concierges have volunteered at Moveable Feast to clean up their outdoor gardens, paint and update their kitchen, make lunch boxes, and prep meals for their clients. If you are interested in getting involved or volunteering with Moveable Feast, visit their website. They would love to have you!

In Virginia, we partnered with Food for Others to collect donations for those in need of free meals. Food for Others shares meals with Northern Virginia, in an effort to provide food assistance during emergencies, or for those who cannot afford food. With a majority of their donations largely collected by food drives, we were happy to help them in their quest to end hunger!

dc-central-kitchenIn DC, we partnered with DC Central Kitchen, which provides thousands of meals daily to those in need. DC Central Kitchen fights hunger a little differently by running career initiatives for those who are unemployed, and then serving their culinary masterpieces to homeless shelters and non-profits.
