Beach Boys Pizza- End Hunger 2015

Beach Boys Pizza LLC team members out of Annapolis & Southern Maryland areas once again stepped up and volunteered to assist the End Hunger of Calvert County’s Foodstock 2015 by sorting, packing, and stocking 7,500 lbs of potatoes, 1,100 lbs of zucchini & squash, 3,300 lbs of cucumbers, and 75 boxes of dry goods in preparation for Foodstock 2015, which will distribute 70,000 lbs of food in 3 hours to approximately 700 needy families right in their community this Saturday.
Southern Maryland Area Supervisor John Kreuter said “it is an honor to help the End Hunger initiative. Our team members talk about this Humanitarian day all year long and despite the heat and grueling work, love it”. Annapolis Area Supervisor Chris Swift, who brought his twin girls to help out said “this is a day where our families meet our Papa John’s family and get to see firsthand what it is like to work as a team and be a part of a bigger extended family. Our team members have brothers, sisters, children & even mothers out there helping”.
Operating Partner Ray Sears said ” it is certainly special when you can “give where you live”; however it is equally special to have such a Team that will give up their valuable time off to volunteer for a local cause and make a presence in our Communities”. I love these guys….. they simply “Get IT”.

End Hunger to host fourth FoodStock this weekend

End Hunger In Calvert County will host its fourth annual FoodStock distribution event from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 8. That morning, nearly 100,000 pounds of food will be sorted and distributed, free of charge, to nearly 800 local families as well as the organization’s partner food pantries, a press release states. People will receive a combination of fresh produce provided by Farming 4 Hunger and nonperishable food items from the Maryland Food Bank.
“Most people don’t realize that hunger is not a food issue,” Jacqueline Miller, president of End Hunger In Calvert County, said in the press release. “There’s plenty of food. In Calvert County hunger is a distribution and access issue. FoodStock is our county’s united effort to fix that problem. On August 8th, anyone who shows up to FoodStock will leave with nonperishable food items and fresh produce. It’s that simple.”
Calvert County is the 13th wealthiest county in the United States, yet more than 10 percent of the population uses local food pantries, according to the release. On average, End Hunger’s partner pantries serve more than 900 families every week. A complete list of partner food pantries can be found at
“This is our fourth FoodStock and every year cars begin lining up at [6 a.m.], two and half hours before the event begins,”
Miller said in the release. “FoodStock is [a] reminder to our community that hunger in Calvert County is real, the people it effects are real, and our ability to solve it is real.”
During the week leading up to FoodStock, volunteer teams from Beach Boys Pizza — Papa John’s, S.J. Johnson Inc., Plan B Technology, Bay Wine and Spirits and Dunkirk Walmart will sort and pack food boxes that will later be distributed.
FoodStock takes place at the End Hunger Warehouse at 141 Schooner Lane, Prince Frederick, located in the Calvert Industrial Park. For more information about FoodStock or End Hunger In Calvert County, go to, or call 410-257-5672.
