Teaming up with Maryland's Day to Serve

This is the second year that CBF has teamed up with Maryland's Day to Serve--a special initiative in partnership with various community and interfaith partners to work together to feed the hungry and heal the planet. This year, not only is CBF hosting volunteer events, it is also offering guidance to fellow Day to Serve participants. If any organization, church, or school group needs assistance developing plans, wants ideas, or is looking for a list of resources, CBF is here to help! Just shoot us an e-mail to the address below.

On the Eastern Shore of Maryland, CBF will be hosting a River Cleanup at Sailwinds Park in Cambridge. As part of the Ocean Conservancy's International Coastal Cleanup effort, volunteers will remove trash and debris along the beach of the Choptank River--a major tributary of the Chesapeake Bay and the largest river on the Delmarva Peninsula. Last year nearly 600,000 volunteers across the globe participated in the Ocean Conservancy's International Coastal Cleanup, resulting in 10 million pounds of trash removed! Come be a part of this great effort.

Each year, CBF's sustainable Clagett Farm provides roughly 25,000 pounds of free and reduced-price food to lower income communities through a partnership with the Capital Area Food Bank in Washington D.C. On Sept. 28, volunteers will further this effort by harvesting organic vegetables to be donated to Capital Area Food Bank. Participants will also learn about sustainable agriculture and how farms implementing best management practices are helping to reduce harmful nutrients in the Chesapeake Bay and its rivers and streams. 

We hope you'll join us!
