Parole and Probation feeds the community
TOWSON, MD — Hats off to the agents, monitors, and staff at Parole and Probation’s busy Hyattsville Field Office. They hosted what is believed to be the first Maryland Food Bank-sanctioned mobile food pantry for parolees and probationers.
Thanks to the great people at the Capital Area Food Bank, this wonderful partnership won’t be a one-time affair: the Food Bank wants to continue the event monthly to reach the largely underserved population of struggling citizens who are under Parole and Probation’s supervision.
More than 80 parolees and probationers came out within the first 90 minutes of the food giveaway, which featured a lot of fresh produce and healthy items. Those men and women were thrilled to see their agents doing such a positive thing outside the courthouse.
Public Safety salutes the dedication of the folks at the Hyattsville Parole and Probation Field Office for this tremendous effort.
