September is Hunger Action Month, and I'm committed to helping raise awareness about food insecurity in our state. I want to share some startling statistics: Hungry Marylanders miss nearly 127 million meals each year. More than 740,000 of our neighbors are food insecure. And 236,000 children in Maryland do not know where their next meal will come from. We can make a difference by supporting the Maryland Food Bank, our state's largest and oldest food bank. The Maryland Food Bank works with more than 600 network partners, including food pantries, soup kitchens and emergency shelters, to get food into the hands of those who need it most.

The man who police say shot and critically wounded a co-rector and killed another worker at an Ellicott City church last week was angry about being told to limit his visits to the food pantry, church leaders said in a statement on Saturday. The shootings of the two women have plunged the congregation of St. Peter's Episcopal Church, founded in Howard County in 1842, into mourning. The church has announced a private service for Sunday at 10 a.m. The statement from the church says a custodian found the victims in an office.
