Maryland Food Bank Needs Volunteers

Jessica Kartalija reports the food bank is having a difficult time getting food to those who need it.

Every week, some 600,000 Marylanders rely on the help of the Maryland Food Bank. Now more than half a million pounds of food is sitting at the Baltimore County warehouse waiting to be distributed.
