Hunger Hero Award 2022


Congratulations to AAACERT’s President, Bruce Morgenstern, for receiving the Hunger Hero Award Commitment to Service. During the pandemic, AAACERT’s all-volunteer members donated almost 8,000 hours of service. One of the organizations where members donated their hours was at the Anne Arundel County Food Bank. The following commnets are from the Facebook page of the AACFB. Please check out their website and consider making a donation.

Feeding Hope Event
Our Feeding Hope event was extremely successful, uplifting, and full of hope! The positive energy and excitement for our mission exuded from all event attendees. In total, the event raised over $65,000 with donations still coming in! Thanks to the generosity of our local business partners, the funds raised from this event allows us to purchase food for families experiencing food insecurity throughout our county.
Thank you to our presenting event sponsors Homestead Gardens and Sysco and to every Feeding Hope event supporter who helped us raise money to support our work to ensure everyone has enough to eat in Anne Arundel County!
Thank you to all the wonderful restaurants who are donating food:
Behind the Scenes Charcuterie, Byzantium Catering, the 2016 Chesapeake Chili Cook-Off Champion, Fishpaws Marketplace, Honey’s Farmhouse Retreat, Honey’s Harvest Farm, Luk Fu, Maggiano’s Little Italy, Bread & Butter Kitchen, The Prime Rib, and The Smoke Show – Craft BBQ

Hunger Hero Awardee
Bruce Morgenstern | Commitment to Service

At the beginning of the pandemic when AACFB lost its entire volunteer workforce, Bruce made it his mission to ensure that AACFB had the manpower in place to continue to get food to County residents in need. As president of Anne Arundel Annapolis Community Emergency Response Team (AAA CERT), Bruce brought much-needed help to our warehouse, ensuring that our mission would not falter. We also recognize Bruce for other AACFB volunteer projects he initiated from creating databases and providing IT support to management consulting.
