Food bounty effort starting up - volunteers needed

A group of Glover Park residents is interested in turning food waste (the day's leftovers in restaurants, etc.) to food bounty for those in need.   The initial thinking is to start a neighborhood volunteer corps.   While there is often red tape involved with food donation, these good souls believe it can work particularly in light of the federal Good Samaritan Food Donation Act and similar efforts across the region and country as highlighted by Feeding America (formerly America's Second Harvest).   Those interested in joining in should email Deborah at debsrab[AT]gmail[DOT]com.
