Chris Noth to Present ‘Hometown Hunger Hero’ Award to Maryland Nonprofit

Nourish Now, a Maryland nonprofit that aims to reduce food waste and feed local families in need, will travel to New York City tomorrow to receive Beaulieu Vineyard’s National Hometown Hunger Hero Award.

The award will be presented by actor Chris Noth, best known for his role as Mr. Big in Sex and the City, and will acknowledge the organization’s work collecting unused, fresh food from restaurants and hotels to distribute to families struggling with food insecurity in the Washington, D.C. region.

To date, Nourish Now has donated more than 100,000 pounds of food to families and provided healthy snacks for children involved in afterschool programs. The organization has also teamed up with several of Maryland’s most popular restaurants, Quench and Not Your Average Joe’s, to offer a local family a full-course, dine-in meal, free of charge every week. Nourish Now has recently collaborated with another area nonprofit, So What Else, to work towards the ambitious goal of providing enrichment programs and healthy meals and snacks to 1000 children by the end of this summer.
