The SHARE Food Network marked 25 years of providing healthy and affordable food to the local community the only way it knew how – by eating delicious cake in a warehouse full of vegetables. Several hundred volunteers and local community leaders gathered at the Hyattsville warehouse to celebrate the program, which has provided affordable groceries to tens of thousands of families in its history. Started in 1990, the SHARE Food Network follows a model of bulk purchasing food from the same wholesale sellers who work with major grocery chain stores. The typical SHARE Food Network package costs $20 and includes meats, fresh and frozen vegetables, fruits, starches and sometimes a dessert, typically worth $40-50 from a traditional grocery store.
