Godfrey’s Farm to host first 5K run/walk to benefit Maryland Food Bank

SUDLERSVILLE — Godfrey’s Farm will host its first Blueberry Boogie 5K run/walk to benefit the Maryland Food Bank Saturday, June 19, at the Godfrey Farm Market, 302 Leager Road in Sudlersville.

“We’ve always wanted the opportunity to host a race here on the farm,” said Lisa Godfrey, owner of Godfrey’s Farm, “Knowing that the race proceeds will benefit the Food Bank just makes it a perfect fit.”

The event will start at the Godfrey Farm market and take race participants on a scenic road loop ending back at the market for a reception of farm favorite refreshments. Most importantly, the race will raise money to support the work that the Maryland Food Bank does to provide healthy food to the thousands of food insecure citizens of our state.

The Maryland Food Bank celebrates its 11th year of the Maryland Farm-to-Food-Bank program.

Godfrey’s Farm has participated in this program for the last 9 years, donating many tons of high quality, nutritious fruits and vegetables to communities in need across the state.

Local businesses and organizations have teamed up to help sponsor this event and reach the Maryland Food Bank’s goal of reducing food insecurity in Maryland. Those businesses include A. Cannon & Sons Custom Cabinetry & Millwork, Boy Scout Troop 175, Cawley Family Farm, The Class Produce Group, Fit with Aundra, Graul’s Markets, Keany Produce & Gourmet, Langenfelder Pork, Patriot Acres Farm Brewery, Shore Quality Contracting, Shore Septic, Sudlersville Meat Locker, Tammy’s Cool Things, and Wandering Jerseys Farm.
