Retired television and radio meteorologist Doug Hill addressed the mayor and town council of Chesapeake Beach on Thursday evening, seeking financial support for End Hunger in Calvert County Inc.
Hill, who lives in Chesapeake Beach, gave meeting attendees a virtual tour of the proposed 21,000-square-foot, multi-story warehouse, which would house a commercial-grade food storage and distribution center. The facility, which is expected to cost nearly $3 million to construct, would be located on the campus of Chesapeake Church in Huntingtown. The 9-acre parcel was donated to EHCC by the church. The project is to be built in phases, with the initial segment solving the organization’s ongoing need to lease warehouse space in Prince Frederick. The facility would include cold storage for fresh food that would be distributed to EHCC’s partner food pantries.
